California soon may advance two separate studies on the feasibility of constructing truck-only lanes along heavily congested state roadways.
Plans for building dedicated truck lanes in both directions on selected roadways shape up as a "first of a kind proposal for a public highway," according to Jeff Lustgarten, spokesman for the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG).SCAG for more than a year has been investigating the idea of building dedicated truck lanes, focusing on a 35-mile stretch along Highway 60 near Pomona. SCAG is expected to release its report by year end.
