RES2016-36: Improving resilience of freight networks in West Tennessee

This project developed models and tools of freight network vulnerability and resilience that capture both long/medium range pre- and post-disruption network conditions. This research used the demand/supply of the passenger and freight road network of the greater Memphis metropolitan area, an important freight hub in the nation’s transportation system and of significant importance to the Midwest region of the U.S. Deliverables include a report on state of the art and practice of network vulnerability and resilience, a GIS based tool and a mathematical model to identify vulnerable freight links and routes, and a mathematical based tool to identify investment options to improve and maximize resilience of the passenger and/or freight network in TN. These products can be used by TDOT, regional, and local public agencies to further improve their respective freight planning processes.
