The Boston Region MPO recognizes the importance of freight transportation and has established a formal freight-planning program starting in federal fiscal year 2014. MPO staff has developed an “action plan” for the freight program, identifying study efforts that will:

  • Fulfill the MPO freight-planning needs
  • Complement state and other official planning efforts
  • Study specific freight-related issues
  • Fulfill new analysis requirements of MAP-21, and the anticipated subsequent federal authorization
  • Address the lack of freight data for the MPO region, including developing enhanced technical capabilities for MPO staff to estimate freight demand
