The Planning and Policy-Making Infrastructure for Transportation in the Northeast Corridor

The viability and growth of the Northeast Corridor will depend upon how well its transportation infrastructure can anticipate and respond to future demographic and technological changes. However, responsibility for overall Corridor transportation governance, and for each of the major modes operating within it, are fragmented among and within the public and non-governmental sectors and little research has been undertaken to delineate and assess all of its elements and their performance. This project's purpose is to identify the components of the transportation planning and policy making infrastructure for each mode - aerial, auto, marine, rail, trucking - within the Corridor and for their coordination and linkage. The research will produce a directory of major public and non-governmental entities involved in transportation planning and policy making, indicate their purpose and authority, and identify the spatial scale of their transportation-related activities. The resulting database will be publicly available in published form and accessible on the Web and be a first-step in a larger project to assess and examine how to enhance Corridor transportation governance.
