Attendees at the December 6th, 2016 Regional Freight Stakeholder Workshop

The New York State Department of Transportation and GBNRTC hosted a Regional Freight Stakeholder Workshop on December 6th, 2016 as part of the New York State Freight Transportation Plan.

Over 30 representatives from the public and private sector were on hand to hear about the study’s initial findings and to provide feedback.

The Statewide Freight Transportation Plan will provide a strategic framework to guide short and long-term freight-related transportation investments and strategies in New York State.

More information about the plan can be found on the project website at: https://www.dot.ny.gov/freight-plan.

The FAST Act requires all states to have a freight plan in order to receive federal funding for freight projects.
