Planning for Urban Freight: Putting it Into Practice (Project J6)

The goal of this project is to apply the results of previous STRIDE research on planning for urban freight to demonstrate the potential for stronger consideration of freight concerns in economic development and land use planning activities. The research team will partner with the Greater Nashville Regional Council (GNRC), Tennessee as they convene a working group around freight transportation. The team will share findings from previous research and work with stakeholders to identify near-term opportunities to apply research findings to Nashville’s approach. Moving goods through southeastern cities is critical to economic activity. Rising online shopping combined with increasing urban development has led to congestion on streets and conflicts about how to use limited curb space in towns and cities. This project will apply previous STRIDE research on urban freight to provide regions with information about key issues and solutions.
