Those of us in the industry have long been clamoring for a national goods movement plan and the funds to back it up. As part of MAP-21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act), the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) was charged with identifying the network of highways which serve as the nation’s Primary Freight Network. Each state is tasked with developing a list of priority projects for freight mobility. In California, the committee is called the California Freight Advisory Committee (C-FAC), and our own Richard Coyle, President, Devine Intermodal, has been selected as a committee member.
So far, the USDOT have identified more than 41,000 miles of roadway as freight corridors of which 3,100 are in California. To see the map of California highways identified, click here.
