Freight and logistics play a significant role in the regional transportation system and economy. The MPO integrates freight mobility issues, policies, and projects into the planning process to guide investment in a sustainable multimodal transportation system.

The Regional Freight Mobility Study and Freight Design Guide were completed in February 2019. The purpose of the study and accompanying design guide is to:

  • Evaluate the current and forecasted multimodal freight conditions;
  • Identify freight mobility issues, needs and trends; and
  • Identify and prioritize potential policies and freight mobility-related concerns and issues.

The MPO established a Freight Advisory Committee (FAC) following the completion of the Regional Freight Mobility Study. Information on the FAC’s meetings and activities are available here.
