Statewide Freight Planning Considerations - Understanding
  • Multi-modal (modal “agnostic”)
  • Interconnectivity of entire transportation system
  • Public/Private sector perspectives
    • win / win
    • Planning time frames
  • MPO and local perspectives
    • Local improvements/ local cost
    • = regional or state system benefit

  • Identify inter-modal approaches to advance freight productivity
  • Educate stakeholders

“Freight is a Good Neighbor”

    • Freight = our economic health
      • vs. nuisance issues
    • Use public funds for public good
      • vs claim of private sector benefit

Ex. from Ohio LRP ACCESS OHIOGoal 3 = Efficient, Reliable Traffic Flow

Objectives for 2004-2015:

  • Maintain LOS D on urban & LOS B on rural freeway system
    • thru capacity expansion, geometric improve & low-cost operational improvements
  • Reduce growth in veh. hr.delay from 12 %/yr. to 8%/yr.
  • Target & improve flow @ 342 congest loc.
  • Implement freeway mgnt. in 8 largest urban areas
  • Work w/locals for 90 min-free-flow at incident
  • Invest in Public Transit that adds capacity w/i urban corridors
