Freight Transportation Framework Study

MAG, working with the Joint Planning Advisory Committee (MAG, PAG and CAAG), developed strategies to diversify the Sun Corridor’s economic base. The goal of the 18-month Freight Transportation Framework Study is to unite cities, counties, transportation authorities, freight entities, and businesses to protect, maximize, and expand commerce and economic vitality. The project established a transportation framework that:

  • Identified and developed freight related economic development opportunities.
  • Developed strategies to increase mobility and access for freight movements throughout the Sun Corridor.
  • Identified a freight commodity profile (truck, rail, air, and pipeline).
  • Develop an inland port market assessment.
  • Identified freight infrastructure improvements.
