The I-278 Intermodal Corridor is the term used in this project to define the interconnected network of roadway and railfreight facilities that arc between the New Jersey-New York connection at the Goethals Bridge and the Queens-Bronx connection at the Triborough Bridge, including the existing and proposed rail-freight connections across New York Harbor between Bayonne, New Jersey and Southwest Brooklyn.

The goals of the I-278 Corridor Multimodal Goods Movement project are to provide recommendations for (a) reducing the roadway congestion that is expected from increasing freight volumes and any increasing roadway friction that could result from improved cross-harbor rail freight connections, and (b) maximizing the economic development opportunities that accrue from these increased transport efficiencies and from the new ancillary logistical facilities that will be required to manage distribution functions in the Corridor.
