PierPass June 2016 Newsletter

PierPass in May met with the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce to brief the group on the OffPeak program’s progress in reducing the number of trucks on neighborhood streets. Wilmington sits between the two primary truck corridors into the ports, the 110 freeway on the west and the 710 freeway on the east, and had been plagued by daytime truck congestion on its local roads before the 2005 start of OffPeak’s extended gates.

PierPass May 2016 Newsletter

PierPass in April met with the Harbor City / Harbor Gateway Chamber of Commerce to provide an update on the OffPeak program. The group was encouraged that OffPeak has diverted more than 35 million truck trips out of peak daytime traffic since 2005, reducing congestion on roads and freeways near the ports and reducing air pollution.

In May, PierPass will update the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce on the program’s progress in reducing the number of trucks on neighborhood streets.
