Task 47, FY 1992, "Support for the Joint Committee on Truck Size and Weight" (Dr. Michael D. Meyer). Responding to AR-3-89, AASHTO formed a Joint Committee on Truck Size and Weight, charged with the goal of developing a set of national truck size and weight and related policy recommendations. A Workshop on Truck Size and Weight was held on April 9-10, 1991, in Portland, Oregon. Dr. Meyer conducted a half-day presentation session and a full-day working session toward the development of a comprehensive, strategic set of actions regarding truck size and weight, as well as a work plan leading to their implementation. A summary report of this workshop presenting the AASHTO strategy/work/implementation plan was prepared and reviewed by the Executive Committee on June 10 and by the Policy Committee on June 21, 1991. This task also supported Dr. Meyer's efforts in connection with his coordination of Task 50, which resulted in the completion and submission to AASHTO of a White Paper on the Feasibility of Longer Combination Vehicles.
