The project's major goal is to develop a substantive policy paper describing consensus-based solution(s) to the regions freight transportation problems. The solutions will be described both in terms of the capital program actions which NYSDOT-Region II should undertake as well as the partnerships that should be forged with other agencies responsible for constructing, operating and maintaining the region's highway system. Recent developments such as the Port Authority's Southern Corridor/Gateway 2000 proposal have accentuated the need for NYSDOT and other regional agencies to work together toward a coherent, consistent plan for meeting the region's freight transportation needs.
