South Central Fresno AB617 Community Truck Reroute Study and related Health Assessment

Estudio de Desvío de Camiones de la Comunidad del Centro-Sur de Fresno AB617

The Air District and the City of Fresno have joined forces to undertake the South-Central Fresno AB 617 Community Truck Reroute Study and related Health Assessment, with the City of Fresno Public Works Department taking the project lead. The truck reroute study will identify, analyze, and evaluate potential strategies that freight impacted communities might implement, in cooperation with the City, to abate truck impacts. Such truck impacts include air pollution, noise, polluted runoff, traffic crashes, traffic congestion, active transportation conflicts, residential and school impacts, and excess wear for local pavements and bridges. The study will focus on the analysis of existing and future planned truck routes as defined on the City of Fresno Designated Truck Route Map adopted September 2005. Concurrent with the truck reroute study, a health assessment of the same community boundary will be conducted. The health assessment will (1) seek to assess the extent to which air pollution impacts the risk of common health outcomes across the lifespan, (2) calculate the excess number of cases that are attributed to air pollution in the region, and (3) a community-based health survey will be conducted to explore residents’ concerns, behaviors, health outcomes, and health needs that are relevant to air pollution in the region.

Related Health Assessment Report

The University of California, Merced, has conducted a health assessment of the AB 617 Community as part of the Truck Reroute Study. The health assessment has two main components. The first is a large, city-wide assessment. This assessment contains air district data, birth data, emergency department visits, as well as all Fresno patient discharge data. The second component is the South Fresno Community Survey, which is a representative, community-based survey of South Fresno residents’ health, wellbeing, and concerns with local environmental issues. The results of the Health Assessment are intended to inform the South Central Fresno Truck Reroute Study. Please find the Health Assessment linked below.
