Using Freight Analysis Framework (FAF) Data for Freight Planning

April 29, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Free

The Federal Highway Administration webinar will feature speakers from the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, the Illinois Department of Transportation and Parsons Brinckerhoff. Speakers will present case studies on how they used freight data from the Freight Analysis Framework (FAF) to support regional and State freight planning activities, such as using FAF data to analyze the regional economic impacts of goods movement or develop a statewide freight plan.

This webinar is aimed toward practitioners in State departments of transportation, metropolitan/regional planning organizations, and other agencies with basic or no knowledge of the FAF who would like to move to the next skill level. This webinar will also provide a useful foundation for more advanced topics (e.g., linking FAF with county-level data) covered in future webinars.

Recordings from previous FAF webinars are available here. Feel free to forward this invitation to interested colleagues. Please email [email protected] with any questions. We hope you will be able to participate!
