Can anyone direct me to any websites that might have downloadable blocks or
info on turning radius/paths for different types of vehicles? Specifically,
I am interested in semi-tractor/trailer info.

I know one can search for specific vehicle names in quotes, followed by a comma then the wheelbase. One can probably find track width, front overhang, turning radii, and location of the center of the carrier (tongue, whatever). We have modelled the behavior of tractor trailers with different trailer lengths for passage into and out of delivery zones. In the absence of that, the Graphic Standards contains some design guideline info. And there are some websites with free car and truck blocks....
I hope my info was useful, but if by some odd chance it actually solved your issue, feel free to mark your post as "Accept as Solution". Thanks! :smileyhappy:

Do a web search for a product called AutoTurn. They have templates for
vehicle turning radius' for sell. Most Civil Engineering firms that do
traffic analysis will have AutoTurn and they might give you the radius.

Also, if you have Architectural Graphics Standards book (Chapter One,
General Planning and Design), you can draw your own.

You can also perform a Google search for other ideas.
