Coordination within a Megaregion for Freight Planning: Stakeholder Outreach

This project builds off the work of Texas Department of Transportation's (TxDOT’s) Texas Connected Freight Corridors (TCFC) project with a goal of distilling lessons learned. TCFC is an effort to pilot safety and congestion management connected vehicle (CV) technologies in the field via collaboration between public agencies and private companies in the Texas Triangle Megaregion. TCFC was designed to be geographically broad because these roadways are key corridors for freight movement which experience a high volume of traffic. The project includes vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) applications which will be enabled using various communication tools. The TCFC project provides a unique opportunity to follow the planning of a CV project which will help to enhance freight mobility within a megaregion. This work captures the key methods which made stakeholder outreach successful along with lessons learned that can be applied to future projects undertaken by other megaregions.
