HAMPTON ROADS REGIONAL FREIGHT STUDY –

2017 UPDATE: DRAFT REPORT

 

The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, has completed the DRAFT Hampton Roads Regional Freight Study report.

 

Over the last couple of decades, the HRTPO has engaged in numerous important freight planning activities, including the development of the Hampton Roads Regional Freight Study, which serves as a comprehensive resource document on the Hampton Roads multimodal transportation system.  

 

The overall purpose of this study is to understand the impact of freight movement on regional and statewide employment, income, and economic growth in order to guide policy and investment decisions—particularly for prioritizing transportation projects—that will improve connectivity, efficiency, reliability, and safety of the Hampton Roads freight multimodal transportation system.

 

This report details the movement of goods across all freight facilities—highways, ports, railways, and airports.  Special emphasis is placed on freight moving by trucks across highways as they serve as the predominant mover of freight.

All interested parties are encouraged to review the draft report and send comments to Mr. Sam Belfield at sbelfield@hrtpo.org or by mail to 723 Woodlake Drive, Chesapeake, Virginia 23320. The deadline for comments on this draft report is June 16, 2017.
