Freight Megaregional Planning and Financial Policy

This CM2 Year 3 research will examine the role of freight planning at the megaregion level. It builds on prior research within the UTC, which established how important megaregions are in inducing freight trips. (Steiner, Yaro, & Zhang, net yet published).This project will look at how that influence can be leveraged to ensure state transportation financing remains stable, and the opportunities that exist in state and regional freight planning. By examining freight infrastructure funding from the megaregion perspective, this project will contribute to the body of knowledge necessary to protect, preserve, and expand freight infrastructure within megaregions.
