COMPREHENSIVE AREAWIDE CONSOLIDATION AND RELOCATION STUDY-- ST. LOUIS REGION. VOLUME 2 - FREIGHT AND MODE-SHARE ANALYSIS

This report on "Freight Generation and Mode-Share Analysis" for the Comprehensive Areawide Railroad Consolidation and Relocation Study - St. Louis Region evaluates the rail share of future freight traffic volume that might be anticipated for the St. Louis Region. The purpose of the report is to develop forecasts of future rail freight volumes that are classified as "overhead" or "through" freight and those that either originate or terminate in the St. Louis Region and are referred to as "local" freight. The assumptions and methodology used to obtain the forecasts are discussed along with the application of the Multi-Regional Input-Output Model (MIRO). The forecasts are used as input to the AAR Network Simulation Model and, in addition, the local freight forecasts are used in conjunction with projects of future industrial locations patterns within the region to develop a freight generation map. Industrial locations patterns are obtained from the DYLAM II Model which allocates future growth in land uses based on the supply of sites meeting specific physical and environmental criteria.
