The Federal Highway Administration will offer the webinar Curbside Management and Freight Deliveries on November 18, 1 – 2:30 p.m. ET through its monthly Talking Freight series. Although often thought of as a large urban area concern, curbside management can also be an issue for small and medium-sized cities and towns.

Curbside management is a major consideration for many communities as freight deliveries continue to increase.  Freight carriers, retailers, and other businesses all rely on efficient deliveries.  Many transportation users (drivers, transit operators, utility vehicle operators, bicyclists, and pedestrians, as well as freight carriers) use the curbside and sidewalks to serve businesses and people.  As a result, cities and towns need to balance the needs of all of these users to support the businesses and residents who live and work in their communities and rely on freight deliveries.
