State and Federal Resources for Truckers Affected by the Key Bridge Collapse




Maryland has launched a new website to provide a centralized location for resources to help businesses and workers being impacted by the Key Bridge collapse and slowdown of operations at the Port of Baltimore. The site is https://response.maryland.gov/bridge. Members who are seeking financial assistance are urged to review the numerous grant and loan programs listed and act as soon as possible.  You should also monitor this site regularly as new financial assistance programs are being regularly added.

 

In addition, many agencies have worked with MMTA in response to waiver and exception requests the Association submitted to help motor carriers during this time.  Among the successes so far include:

  • Increasing the maximum allowable drive time by two additional hours for certain freight haulers.

  • Waiving the electronic logging device requirement for certain motor carriers. 

  • Temporary suspension of the International Fuel Tax Agreement decal display.

  • Allowing motor carriers without apportioned tags to travel to Pennsylvania and Virginia.

  • Setting up options for financial assistance for those in need.

Details about many of these provisions are available at www.mdtrucking.org.
