Truck Routes

Trucks and commercial vehicles are essential to the region, providing goods and services to the residents every day.  The City's diverse mixture of land uses, dense urban environment and vast transportation infrastructure require a distinct set of rules and regulations to govern the operation of trucks and commercial vehicles on city streets.  In order for this system to function efficiently, it is important that drivers observe these rules and regulations.  The City of Stockton Truck Route Map is available to help truck and commercial vehicle operators.


STAA Truck Routes

The Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA) of 1982 allows large trucks to operate on the Interstate and certain primary routes called collectively the National Network.  These trucks, referred to as STAA trucks, are longer than California legal trucks.  As a result, STAA trucks have a larger turning radius than most local roads can accommodate.


The City of Stockton coordinates with San Joaquin County Public Works and Caltrans when establishing STAA Routes in and around the City.  The STAA Truck Route Map is available to help operators determine these routes within Stockton and San Joaquin County.


An application for a STAA Truck Terminal Access can be submitted to the Traffic Engineering Division.  The application process can be viewed at the Caltrans website.
