Freight Transportation Flows: Trends, Impacts and Mitigation Efforts


Kathleen Vaughn (Editor)

Series: Transportation Issues, Policies and R&D
BISAC: TRA000000

Projected increases in the transport of freight by rail and truck may produce economic benefits but also increase traffic congestion in communities. This book addresses among other things, the recent changes in U.S. rail and truck freight flows and the extent to which related traffic congestion is reported to impact communities; the extent to which DOT’s efforts to implement MAP-21 address freight-related traffic congestion in communities.
