THE NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM: AGRICULTURAL AND RURAL ISSUES AND CONCERNS

The National Transportation System is a planning framework, a blueprint, and a strategy. It is a planning framework to position the United States to be competitive in the international economy. It is a blueprint to meet the nation's twenty-first century needs. It is the strategy to maximize the performance and efficiency of the system relative to the dollars available for investment in national transportation. National trade corridors will be described in the national system, and missing intermodal connections will be identified. The authors of this presentation also address rural economy and agriculture, the condition of the infrastructure, financing, and the process of linking rural areas across modes - the intermodal linkages that allow for seamless movement of people and commodities.
