Freight Transportation

Smart Moves

The freight transportation system is a vital part of our economy. Efficient and safe freight movement supports industrial and commercial growth, creates jobs, and improves quality of life. MAG works with partner agencies and freight stakeholders to improve the freight network. This is done through smart long-term investments that attract industry and support household needs through improved speed, reliability, cost, productivity, and safety.
