Suggested Ideas for Incorporating Alternative Fuel and Clean Corridor Concepts into State Freight Plans

The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), signed in 2012, directed the Secretary of Transportation to “encourage States to develop freight plans that are comprehensive and that include both immediate and long-term freight planning activities and investments.” Interim guidance developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) indicated which elements were required in state freight plans, and also included additional recommended elements and a suggested structure for the plan.
