U.S. Transportation Secretary Slater Restates Policy on Banning Trucks On New Jersey Route 31

Federal Highway Administration
July 1, 1999

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, July 1, 1999
Contact: Gail Shibley
Telephone: 202-366-0660
FHWA 43-99

U.S. Transportation Secretary Rodney E. Slater today restated long-standing U.S. Department of Transportation policy regarding banning trucks on Route 31 in New Jersey.

"As the department has consistently stated since 1996, the state of New Jersey has the authority to regulate commercial motor vehicle traffic on Route 31. Route 31 is not part of the federally-designated National Network of truck routes. Further, New Jersey is not required to allow such vehicles to use Route 31 as a through route or shortcut between highways that are on the National Network.

"The state of New Jersey has ample authority to address truck traffic on Route 31 and other routes not part of the National Network. The U.S. Department of Transportation stands willing to continue to provide technical assistance to New Jersey as it acts on this important issue."
