Special Panel to Examine Effective Coordination of Freight Planning on July 17th
The Committee’s Panel on 21st Century Freight Transportation, chaired by U.S. Rep. John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-TN), will hold a roundtable meeting next Wednesday to examine the importance of and challenges to the coordinated planning of freight transportation improvements.
Many governmental and non-governmental entities are involved in the process of planning the development of any functioning transportation system, and when it comes to the planning of large, intricate freight improvements with regional or national importance, this process becomes even more complicated.
Next Wednesday, the Panel will focus on how freight planning stakeholders can effectively coordinate efforts to ensure the timely and well-planned delivery of freight transportation facilities, whether additional ways for these entities to cooperate on the planning of large freight projects can be identified, and identifying challenges that may impede the effective coordination of the planning for large freight projects.
The roundtable policy discussion on “Effectively Coordinating Freight Planning Activities” is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 17th in room 2253 Rayburn House Office Building.
