Project Details

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is installing automated Truck Parking Availability Systems (TPAS) at Interstate 10 (I-10) rest areas and weigh stations in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Holmes, Jackson, Gadsden, Leon, and Jefferson counties. The Florida Welcome Center in Escambia County is also included in the program.

The automated systems will monitor available commercial truck parking spaces at the facilities and report the information to truck drivers using digital message signs. TPAS will use in-ground sensors in the truck spaces at interstate rest areas/welcome centers, and entrance and exit counts at weigh stations to monitor the number of available truck parking spaces

Traffic Impacts

Work is not expected to impact traffic on I-10 or within rest areas or weigh station facilities. No more than 50 percent of available truck parking spaces will be closed at any time, and no closures will be permitted between 4 p.m. and 9 a.m. daily. Pedestrian access in the rest areas will be maintained always.

Note: All information is preliminary and subject to change without notice.
