The objective of this project was to develop a guidebook that can be used by practitioners and decisionmakers on freight issues in small and mid-sized metropolitan areas. The guidebook describes how freight policy, planning, and programming processes can be most effectively designed, initiated, and managed to ensure timely implementation of freight transportation decisions. The research is directed toward lessons learned from experiences in small and mid-sized MPOs that result in more effective consideration of freight issues in policy, planning, and programming decisions.
Status: The project has been completed.
