The Effects of Transportation Infrastructure Investments on Freight Mobility: a Megaregion Perspective

Freight within megaregions comprises a large number of regional trips, but has received less attention from planners. This report shows how travel demand models that consistently handle freight throughout a megaregion can be used to plan for infrastructure investments or strategies to increase freight mobility. To do this, the Texas Triangle Megaregion is used as an example because it is mostly contained within a single state with an existing statewide travel demand model. Additionally, this report provides descriptions of freight data sources and emerging freight trends that planners without a freight expertise might not be familiar with.
