2/15/2017 - Suggestions and Participants Needed for the New River Valley Regional Freight Study Local Survey
The New River Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization is updating a regional freight study.  The purpose of the study is to comprehensively examine the existing freight transportation system (roadways, rail, and air).  Particular emphasis is on identifying specific transportation infrastructure needs to address future goods movement.  Before crafting a future vision, our team needs to develop an accurate picture of existing freight conditions.  
A draft regional freight study is attached here.  The questions are intended to build on existing statewide and national freight data – creating a more accurate picture of existing freight conditions.  Please provide any suggestions regarding survey content by next Thursday, February 22nd.  The NRVMPO will work 1-on-1 with local economic development offices and representatives from the business community to complete surveys.
Please contact Dan Brugh at (540) 394-2145 or if you have any questions.  On behalf of the NRVMPO, thank you for assisting with this effort.
