Primary freight network1
Primary Freight Network Plans”

State Overview

Information gathered from:

  • State MPO’s

  • MnDOT

  • MAFC

  • AASHTO

    Range of views gathered to response to process


Primary freight network2
Primary Freight Network Plans”

Response to 27K & 3K Centerline miles

  • Does not yield most critical routes

  • No connection to some key major freight facilities

  • Disagree with top-down approach

    Methodology for achieving network

  • Eliminate cap; increase cap; flexible cap

  • Use corridor approach; connecting - regions, states or countries (trading partners)

  • Have States and/or MPO determine network

  • Enforce statute: 23 USC 135


Primary freight network3
Primary Freight Network Plans”

How NFN and its components will be used by freight stakeholders

  • Resource to State Freight Networks, State Freight Plans and State Advisory Committees

  • Funding criteria for CUFC, CRFC, PFN or Interstate

  • Support for a multimodal, economic, freight network

  • Not a federal funding source based on proposed network


Primary freight network4
Primary Freight Network Plans”

Suggestions for an urban-area route designation process

  • Integral to the PFN, but prohibited due to mileage limitation

  • Urban segment not part of PFN

  • State DOTs should designate intermodal connectors, in consultation with MPOs

  • Consider routes lower than 8,500 AADT for connectivity

Primary Freight Network Plans”

Other comments:

  • HPMS – Federal investment needed to improve data

  • Intermodal Connectors – revise criteria within urban areas over 200K population

  • Include marine and other land ports of significance

  • Decrease 10-year PFN designation cycle
