Now Available: Statewide Freight Plan Template
Freight transportation issues are complex, involving many stakeholders who have different views on and approaches to resolving the issues and challenges facing the freight transportation industry. Today, one of the challenges facing public sector transportation professionals is incorporating freight perspectives into the transportation planning process. To address this challenge, FHWA has developed a Statewide Freight Plan template, intended to assist State DOTs in including freight analysis in the update of their plans and/or developing a separate freight plan. The template presents options for including freight in the planning process. Examples are provided to show how agencies have used a format similar to the one showcased in the report to advance their freight programs.
If a State decides to develop a freight plan, the State may find it helpful to use the entire template, or draw upon specific elements that are relevant to their unique situation.
The template is available in HTML and PDF at http://www.ops.fhwa.dot.gov/publications/fhwahop11026/index.htm. To order hard copies of the document, please send an email with the number of copies requested and shipping information to [log in to unmask].
