The TPB has developed a draft freight plan for the region and is seeking public comment by July 9. The draft plan aims to highlight the importance of freight in the region and to guide future freight planning at the regional level.

Among the key elements of the draft freight plan is a discussion of how economic and population growth have increased demand for goods movement. The plan also includes an overview of the different ways freight travels in the region, specific lists of projects and policies that affect or could help improve regional freight movement, and a list of key policy areas including hazard mitigation and environmental justice.

The draft Freight Plan is open for public comment through July 9. The TPB will be asked to approve the plan at its July 20 meeting.
