Webinar: Addressing Congestion and Delays Caused by Freight

Thursday, May 4, 2017 - 3:12pm

Caltrans Office of Freight Planning will host two free webinars on May 23, 2017 and May 30, 2017 in collaboration with the METRANS Transportation Center, University of Southern California to solicit input for addressing new federal requirements into the California Freight Mobility Plan (CFMP).  The CFMP lays out a vision for all the ways freight is moved, including seaports, air cargo, railroads, and trucking.  The purpose of these webinars is to gather information from stakeholders and the community on:

1. the expected impacts of freight, and

2. possible mitigation strategies.

Draft recommendations are being developed for potential inclusion as an addendum to the existing CFMP to comply with new federal requirements and public input is being sought as part of that process.

You are cordially invited to participate by attending the live webinar or viewing the recording after the webinar has occurred. Consideration will be given to comments received in written formats at [email protected] by June 2, 2017.
