Truck congestion near port terminals, as well as on roads, bridges, and in neighborhoods is reaching a crisis point. With new local legislation proposed to curb neighborhood truck traffic and the push to decrease the size of highways such as the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, the time for comprehensive solutions, including waterborne ones, is here. This panel explores the impact of truck traffic on local communities, current and ongoing analysis of the problem of truck congestion, and the solutions proposed that need investment and prioritization by industry, government, and the Port Authority.
