State Overview

Information gathered from:

  • State MPO’s
  • MnDOT
  • MAFC

Range of views gathered to response to process

Primary Freight Network

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

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

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

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

Thanks for listening!
