AASHTO Comments on State Freight Plan Provisions

The AASHTO Freight Working Group has recently submitted comments to the US Department of Transportation on the MAP-21 Interim Guidance on State Freight Plans and State Freight Advisory Committees, and the related Memorandum on Prioritization of Projects to Improve Freight Movement Guidance. These comments, which speak to the implementation of the freight provisions in MAP-21, were the product of extensive discussions between AASHTO, state departments of transportation, and other stakeholders.
The Mid-America Freight Coalition and its ten member state DOTs play a key role in the AASHTO Freight Working group and provided extensive comments in feedback throughout the discussion of the freight provisions in MAP-21. Many of these concerns were integrated into the final document.
