Developing Delaware's Agenda in Transportation within the Northeast Corridor

While the Northeast transportation corridor is a key economic driver in the national economy, its resiliency depends on its ability to respond to multimodal transportation pressures and issues. Although considerable scholarly research and dialogue regarding challenges facing the Northeast transportation corridor, there is an unmet need to identify, understand, and better aggregate data on specific issues impacting the area between Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Baltimore, Maryland. Delaware's agenda within the Northeast transportation corridor needs to be developed to understand potential threats and opportunities, which may impact or enhance the resiliency of multimodal transportation systems within this region. The purpose of this project is to advance multimodal transportation planning to (1) frame the transportation issues impacting Philadelphia-Baltimore area, (2) foster an integration of ideas and cooperation among multi- and inter-jurisdictional transportation stakeholders, and (3) develop Delaware's transportation agenda with respect to the Northeast corridor. To accomplish this, the research approach will consist of an analysis of perspectives of regional transportation stakeholders for various modes in the Philadelphia-Baltimore area, a review of literature specific to Northeast corridor transportation studies within the Philadelphia-Baltimore area, a preliminary analysis of the literature review, and plan and execute a briefing workshop to bring together/engage regional transportation agencies and stakeholders to discuss Delaware's transportation agenda targeted to the Northeast corridor. The preliminary analysis will be distributed via an online, downloadable format to select transportation stakeholders. A working paper will be prepared to incorporate input from stakeholders at the briefing workshop.
