Freight Transportation Stakeholders:


This notice is a quick reminder that the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)’s Office of Freight Management and Operations is hosting its next Quarterly Technical Assistance Webinar for the National Performance Measures Research Data Set (NPMRDS) on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. (EST).


NPMRDS is the probe data that FHWA is using internally for passenger and freight analysis and making available to States and MPOs. At this webinar, FHWA and its contractors will provide an overview of the probe data set, demonstrate data applications, and respond to technical assistance questions. Officials from Florida DOT and the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) will also review examples of how their agencies have utilized the NPMRDS. This webinar is open to U.S. DOT, State DOT, MPO, academic, and private sector participants – please feel free to distribute the invitation widely.
