This is CARB's notice of approval for San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District's (APCD) submitted Project Plan for a truck rerouting study in the community of South Central Fresno, selected for participation in Assembly Bill (AB) 617 through development of a Community Emissions Reduction Program. This measure will study whether heavy-duty trucks traveling within the community can be rerouted to reduce emissions exposure of South Central Fresno community residents. The study will focus on the analysis of existing and future planned routes as defined on the September 25, 2005, City of Fresno Designated Truck Route Map in the boundary area defined by AB 617. The study will also analyze potential changes to the designated routes, including eliminating existing routes and proposed new routes, as identified in the Southwest Specific Plan and during the community engagement process.
For more information on the Fresno Truck Study, see the details for the project on San Joaquin Valley APCD's web site.
