The Northwest Seaport Alliance applauds approval of Seattle heavy haul network

“The Northwest Seaport Alliance thanks the Seattle City Council for its approval of a heavy haul network that will make us a more competitive international gateway and improve the livelihood of truck drivers,” said Port of Seattle co-President Courtney Gregoire. “Seattle’s heavy haul network, like others in Los Angeles, Long Beach and Tacoma, will allow freight to move more safely and efficiently through our North Harbor.”  

The heavy haul corridor will raise the truck weight limit on designated roads near port facilities, eliminate citations for overweight loads and provide a framework to repair and build roads within the network.
