Clean Green and Smart project description: The West Coast Corridor “Clean, Green and Smart” research project is led by Caltrans, the Transportation Sustainability Research Center at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Cascadia Center in Seattle with primary funding from the FHWA Multi-State Coordination and Operations Management (“MCOM”) program. The goal is to create a stronger understanding of the goods movement alternative fueling infrastructure along the West Coast Corridor, including current and planned facilities and the opportunities and challenges for expanding facilities. A key aspect of the project is an exploration of business models that include public and private collaboration. This is a multi-year effort in conjunction with an ongoing Smart Truck Parking project led by Caltrans and TSRC that is providing dynamic parking information for truckers, and truck stop amenities, including alternative fueling options, along the I-5 corridor.. The project is exploring models for providing information to truckers, expanding truck parking, issues pertaining to ports and parking, and expanding alternative fueling options.
