Freight Intermodal Connectors Study

The objective of this study is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the condition and performance of the nation’s freight intermodal connectors. This approach extracts connector data from Federal, State, and local sources to understand the operations of freight connectors relative to the broader freight transportation system. It also includes 18 case studies to perform a deep-dive into planning, stakeholder, and funding elements that are specific to freight intermodal connectors. The results of the study are used to estimate the additional operating costs associated with using freight intermodal connectors due to current pavement and bottleneck conditions.
