NEED FOR A PORT PLANNING METHODOLOGY

This paper reviews waterway and port development within a set of complex institutional, governmental, and intermodal issues. The lack of a policy statement relating port facilities to national transportation needs and planning activities and the widely varied investment criteria for port-related transportation facilities (highways, rails, and public transit) have established an environment conducive to overinvestment in regional port facilities. This paper develops a commodity flow analysis and reviews potential implementation and funding options and the integration of ports into federal transportation activities and the regional and metropolitan transportation planning process.
