Interstate-80 Freight Corridor Analysis: Current Freight Traffic, Trends and Projections in Special Consideration of Wyoming Policy-makers in Planning, Engineering, Highway Safety and Enforcement

This report is the result of a two-part study intended to provide input to the Wyoming Department of Transportation's (WYDOT’s) long-term planning process for the I-80 facility. The first phase of the study involved an on-the-ground freight survey of over 2,000 truckers traveling eastbound and westbound on Interstate 80. The second phase involved analysis of macro-trends that will influence future freight volumes along the I-80 corridor through Wyoming. The study uses a scenario analysis framework to combine data and insight from these two phases to yield useful input and a potential freight planning framework for WYDOT planners and decision makers.
