Caltrans seeks input on freight mobility plan

The California Department of Transportation is planning a public workshop next week to solicit input on the draft California Freight Mobility Plan.

A vision for how freight is moved in the state, including seaports, air cargo, railroads and trucking, the mobility plan and other state plans will be relied on by the U.S. Department of Transportation as it shapes a national freight plan. Projects identified in California’s plan will be eligible to apply for a higher percentage of federal funding.

The public workshop on the plan is scheduled for July 24 from 4-7 p.m. at Caltrans' district office, 4050 Taylor St., in the Garcia Room. Parking is available free of charge in the office lot.

Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty said that for California to maintain and improve its status as the world's eighth largest economy, the multimodal plan has to sustain freight jobs, improve transportation and protect both the environment and the state's communities. Of the country’s internationally traded consumer products, about 40 percent of the total is transported through California’s seaports.
