DOT Accepting Public Comments on Proposed Primary Freight Network; NADO Provides Guideline to Members for Submitting Comments
In November, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) proposed a group of key highways to serve as a Primary Freight Network. The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) included a requirement that the Secretary of Transportation designate up to 27,000 miles of existing interstate and other roadways as a Primary Freight Network (with the possible addition of 3,000 miles in the future). In the Federal Register notice, USDOT identifies 41,000 miles necessary to transporting goods efficiently on highways throughout the nation and requests comments from the public to help finalize the map. Click here to view maps of the Primary Freight Network by state and here to read the Federal Register notice. USDOT has extended the original comment period deadline for 30 days; comments on the notice will be accepted until January 17. NADO staff has compiled some suggested talking points and guidelines for members to submit comments. Click here to view the document.
