This project will advance State, metropolitan, regional and local transportation planning capacity building by targeting information to economic development district staff and state department of transportation staff to improve planning and collaboration. In addition, aspects of this work will address areas such as Freight Planning, as this project will include researching the capacity and practice of economic development districts and state departments of transportation to analyze shifting economic flows and private sector trends and economic forecasts.
