• Case Study: Cross Harbor Freight Program

    Cross Harbor Freight Program | Outreach Project

    The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and PANYNJ are proposing to prepare Tier I of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate alternatives to enhance the movement of freight across New York Harbor. Given the existing system, forecasted increases in freight demand translate directly into increased truck traffic in the freight distribution network. The region’s ability to serve its markets is increasingly threatened by its heavy reliance on trucking goods over an aging and congested roadway network, while non-highway freight modes, particularly rail and waterborne, remain underdeveloped and underutilized.  Services included:

    • Public Involvement Plan
    • Stakeholder and Government Relations
    • Outreach Communications
    • Database and Comment Log Management
