Bi-State Regional Commission under its transportation planning role completed the first Bi-State Region Freight Plan in September 2015.  The regional transportation network moves people as well as goods and services.  The Freight Plan looks at the different modes used to move freight – air, water and surface transportation via roads and rail, and offers recommendations for improvements of the system.  The plan compliments the then state freight plans and provides regional goals and objectives to address the economy and demand, safety, mobility and access, asset conditions and impacts on the environment and those living near freight facilities.

An addendum for the plan is underway in 2023-24 to revisit the data in the plan and refine goals, objectives and indicators as well as cross-reference state plan updates that will help measure the degree the system needs are being met and whether there are any new or revised recommendations the region may consider for the future.  As draft information is available, it will be posted to this page.
