What is Trackout? What is a Trackout Control Device?
Trackout is dirt, mud, or other debris tracked onto a paved public roadway by a vehicle leaving a construction site. Dirt and mud is adhered to the tires of the vehicle leaving the construction site, which then deposits the dirt, mud, and other debris onto the street, highway or roadway.
Trackout is also a particulate matter (PM10) and is regulated as an air pollutant.
Trackout is effectively the rocks, dirt and debris that ends up on the adjacent streets and neighborhoods that is “tracked” out of a construction jobsite from trucks and other vehicles.
