Q: How to avoid “Bridge Eating Truck”?

A: One of the distinguish features that MuniRouteTM has is the ability to takes clearance restrictions into account. Routes are generated so that vehicles can pass freely under bridges without being concerned about striking them. It enables users to specify an exact minimum vertical clearance for the route to adhere to. By directing trucks away from low clearance bridges, it will reduce the bridge strikes in New York State and nationwide.

A sneak Peak of MuniRoute
Have a good day!
On November 8, 2013, Dr. Grivas and the ARMA Team had its first meeting with the City of Schenectady. The meeting was very informative and it was such a great opportunity for ARMA and the city of Schenectady to learn more about each other and thus build a mutually understanding relationship.
The primary concern of the City of Schenectady is “How will the city benefit from MuniRouteTM?”
And ARMA proposed the following the benefits:
- Solutions to specific freight truck routing problems as well as suggestions for actions leading to a safer, more livable city.
- Access to the MuniRouteTM GIS system, including maps and the broader database.
- Increase in the quality of the road data in terms of accuracy
- Rerouting trucks away from the sensitive areas.
On the behalf of ARMA, we would like the City of Schenectady to provide data such as speed limits, bridge clearance and weight capacities, traffic location and time, road restrictions, and other associated data.
In the current stage of developing the MuniRouteTM system, it will be a mutual beneficial process and we desire to create a win –win solution for both MuniRouteTM and the City.
The meeting is the first step in building a safer and more livable community for the City of Schenectady by eliminating the issues of congestion and emission.
