Abstract: The recommendations in this report were developed for the City of Chester to mitigate the effects of freight truck movement through the city, including compromised air quality in residential areas. Designated truck routes are proposed to facilitate the safe and efficient movement of goods to and from the city’s industrial waterfront and central business district. Communication strategies and other methods are suggested to encourage use of the proposed routes to support truck drivers, local businesses, and residents.
