Such study shall include traffic congestion from truck deliveries at all hours of the day, night, and overnight. Such study shall include, but not be limited to, an analysis of the feasibility and necessity of implementing measures to reduce traffic congestion resulting from truck deliveries in the designated area between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. including the possibility of shifting truck deliveries between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. to hours after 7 p.m. The department shall implement feasible measures deemed necessary to decrease traffic congestion resulting from truck deliveries recommended by such study.
