SRPEDD's Transportation Planning Department
The Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District (SRPEDD) has determined the need for updating and evaluating freight planning initiatives in the region. The intent of this effort is to analyze and incorporate global, national and statewide goals and trends into the framework of southeastern Massachusetts while remaining sensitive and responsive to the unique needs of our region. SRPEDD intends to assess how growing and changing freight movements may benefit or impact communities and infrastructure assets throughout the region.
The last Regional Truck Study was conducted in 2009, and an updated analysis of the region will have several benefits for the communities. This assessment will equip our communities and business leaders to prepare for, respond to and mitigate the effects of those potential impacts while also leveraging opportunities to promote economic growth and resilience within the region.
