The corridor expansion Results in Name Change: "corridor" becomes "consortium"
With the expansion of the Commercial Motor Vehicle Roadside Technology Corridor (CMVRTC) now covering territories in Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, Kentucky and Mississippi, a name change is in order to more fully represent this vast test bed. The word "Corridor" has been changed to "Consortium." The Consortium will continue to demonstrate, test, evaluate, and showcase innovative CMV safety technologies. The Commercial vehicle enforcement personnel from these states will aid in collection of field data on wireless roadside inspections and other safety related projects. The states within the Consortium encompass approximately 2,400 miles of interstate roadway (I-75, I-81, I-40, I-65, I-24 and I-55 corridors).
The CMVRTC is operated by the Center for Transportation Analysis at Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
