November 20, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
FHWA Office of Freight Management and Operations
This date is limited to the first 300 registrants
Description In the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (i.e. MAP-21) transportation reauthorization bill, there are various provisions that are intended to increase the focus on and ultimately enhance freight transportation within the United States. One of those provisions calls for the establishment of a National Freight Network to focus resources on the most important highways and roadways for freight transportation. The National Freight Network contains three components – the Primary Freight Network, all Interstate Highways not included on the Primary Freight Network, and the Critical Rural Freight Corridors. The Primary Freight Network will be designated by USDOT and includes up to 27,000 centerline miles of roadways that are most critical for freight movements. Various factors were examined when identifying which routes would be designated as part of the draft highway Primary Freight Network.
This webinar will feature approximately 30 minutes of presentations discussing the draft highway Primary Freight Network. The presentations will be followed by a 60 minute Questions & Answers session.
