Registration is now available for the January 22 Talking Freight Seminar on MAP-21 Update and 2014 Initiatives.


Topic: MAP-21 Update and 2014 Initiatives


Date/Time: January 22, 2014 1:00 – 2:30 pm EST




Description: The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act, more commonly known as MAP-21, has been in effect since October 2012.  The law contained an increased emphasis on freight transportation, including provisions related to a national freight policy, performance measurement, truck parking and truck size and weight, and commercial vehicle permits during national emergencies.  MAP-21 also included language guiding the establishment of a National Freight Network, the creation of a National Freight Strategic Plan, state freight plans, and state freight advisory committees.  Work is progressing to meet all of the freight requirements in the law; significant progress has been made by US DOT and our state and local partners.  This webinar will provide an overview of some of the MAP-21 freight provisions that have been implemented or are advancing, and will highlight upcoming activities to be conducted in 2014.
