Eastgate Releases Its First Regional Freight Study

Jul 13, 2018

Available in Eastgate’s library, the Regional Freight Study provides an overview of freight assets, trends, and recommendations for Mahoning and Trumbull counties. The FAST Act encourages MPOs to work with state DOTs and other transportation partners to identify constraints and opportunities for the national movement of freight. As an MPO, Eastgate is responsible for considering all surface transportation modes as part of its planning process. The Regional Freight Study allows Eastgate to better understand the needs of freight providers in the region as well as program infrastructure projects
