  1. 0 Statewide Freight Planning Considerations Ohio Department of Transportation Suzann Rhodes, AICP Administrator, Office of Urban and Corridor Planning Suzann.Rhodes@dot.state.oh.us 614 - 644-7093 www.dot.state.oh.us/planning

  2. Today’s presentation: • My ideas/opinion - what can be done through planning • Some Ohio DOT programs To learn more: • NCHRP studies • 8-36 “Best Practices Statewide Freight Planning” • 8-47 “Guidebook on Freight Policy, Planning and Programming in Small and Medium Metro Areas” • 8-53 “Incorporating Freight into Transportation Planning and Project Selection Processes” • TRB - January ’06 Workshop (tentative)

  3. 0 Planning = Rational Decision Making Process • Understand problems and needs • Gather facts and data, develop maps, conduct research • Define issues, goals, vision, quantify success • Conduct research and involvement to understand public, private sector, government perspectives • Develop and evaluate alternatives • Projects, programs, and strategies • To achieve the goals, meet the needs • Present recommendations /strategies to decision makers

  4. 0 Statewide Freight Planning • Research and analysis to guide fact based decision making Planning • Define issues, goals and direction Policy Development • Recommendations and strategies Programming Projects

  5. 0 Statewide Freight Planning

  6. 0 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 • On-time, reliability issue

  7. 0 1. Freight Planning A. Goals / Objectives • Gather freight data, prepare conditions and needs analysis to aide in DOT decision making • 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

  8. 1. Freight Planning (cont.) B. Measures of Success / Performance Measures • Quality of freight analysis in planning documents • DOT departments or divisions incorporating freight considerations in their decision making • Increase in private sector involvement in planning process

  9. 0 1. Freight Planning (cont.) C. Planning Work Activities • Solicit and analyze freight data • Conduct planning level freight research, analyses • all modes • Develop statewide freight profile including mapping and projections • all modes • Provide technical assistance, data, information / understanding • Incorporate data into the statewide model • or use to validate

  10. 1. Freight Planning (cont.) C. Planning Work Activities (cont.) • Incorporate freight into • the statewide, long range plan • short range planning activities • Quantify and educate DOT staff to understand freight • issues, problems and needs w/in state • issues on inter-modal corridors and connectors • Apply freight cost-benefit analysis on projects • (cost benefit analysis from public and private perspectives)

  11. Travel & Demographic Indices

  12. Truck Freight Density

  13. 0 2. Freight Policy A. Goals / Objectives • Enhance freight knowledge and skills of planners, transportation professionals and leadership • Develop an institutional framework for freight planning and operations • Encourage stakeholder dialogue B. Measures of Success / Performance Measures • Increase in # staff @ DOT and MPOs “considering freight issues” in decision making (e.g. design issues) • Increase in freight specific criteria as part of project prioritization and transportation strategies

  14. 0 2. Freight Policy (cont.) C. Policy Planning Work Activities • Training, workshops, seminars • Peer to peer exchanges • Speaker services • Leadership understanding, backing and direction • Liaison activities • MPO, RR, Water and Air Ports, Trucking Assoc., Highway Patrol, Safety Office/Division, Design staff, Permits, ITS, Multi-state corridors • Advisory Councils • Establish a single point of contact • (now 20-30 states)

  15. 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

  16. BI-70/US-23 FI-70/I-270 CI-70/I-71 SI-70/I-71/SR-315 Columbus Bottlenecks 1998 Total Value = $200 Billion

  17. 0 3. Freight Programming A. Goals / Objectives • Engage the private sector in project development process and project identification • Improve the inter-modal transportation system B. Measures of Success / Performance Measures • Increase in number of DOT and MPO programmed projects that can be identified as having a freight or inter-modal benefit

  18. 0 3. Freight Programming (cont.) C. Program Planning Work Activities • Identify projects in S/TIP having freight benefit • Identify freight projects that may also be CMAQ opportunities • Identify private / public financing partnerships for projects and programs • Win/win

  22. 0 Statewide Freight Planning: Summary EDUCATATION and UNDERSTANDING • Set goals and conduct activities in: • Planning, Policy Development, Programming • Inter-modal / Multi-modal • Integrated / Partnerships • Throughout agency • With MPOs and local governments • Private and Public
