The primary objectives of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Comprehensive Truck Size and Weight (TS&W) Study are to:
assess the potential economic, safety, and environmental impacts of changing existing TS&W limits; and
identify opportunities to increase the efficiency of freight transportation while preserving safety and highway infrastructure.
Reports which have been completed for the TS&W Study, to date, include the following:
Synthesis of Truck Size and Weight Studies and Issues
Analysis of the Truck Inventory and Use Survey from the Truck Size and Weight
