Task 42, FY 1990, "Development of National Truck Size and Weight Policy Recommendations" (TRB Division B). The objective of this task was to assist AASHTO in carrying out Administrative Resolution AR-3-89 which established a goal of developing a set of national truck size and weight and related policy recommendations. Staff support assisted an AASHTO Ad Hoc Task Group on Truck Size and Weight Research and Policy in focusing on major issues critical to formulating truck size and weight policy. The Ad Hoc Task Group developed a list of priority issues and set forth recommendations in the form of AASHTO Resolution PR-5-90, which was adopted by the policy committee. A resource document was prepared, and the Ad Hoc Task Group issued a final report, "Truck Size and Weight Issues."
