The 2055 Freight Transportation System and the Impact of Near Term Rail Improvements on TXDOT Planning: Project Management Plan

A Project Management Plan (“Plan”) defines how a project is executed, monitored, controlled, and eventually closed. The Plan defines and describes all activities under individual tasks that need to be performed to accomplish the project. The Plan includes a detailed schedule of tasks and subtasks, and project deliverables (including necessary review time by all affected agencies). The Plan also identifies risks and mitigation strategies. It describes the communication plan with the project sponsor including submission of progress reports and regular team meetings to discuss outstanding issues. It supports timely submission of quality deliverables within budget. The intended audience of the Plan includes the project sponsor, project advisors, and research team members. The project goals outlined in this report are to: (1) produce a framework for Texas’ freight transportation system in 2055 and (2) develop a set of rail planning recommendations that will be beneficial to Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). Specific divisions or groups that will benefit from this project include: TxDOT’s International Relations Office, Transportation Planning and Programming Division, Rail Division, and border and coastal districts.
