    Clearing the Path: Adding an OOG Perspective to the National Multimodal Freight Network

    Heavy-haul and out-of-gauge cargo transport is booming in the US, thanks in great part to a myriad of infrastructure and energy investment projects supported by a range of government funding. Ironically, however, hundreds of road construction and infrastructure projects now underway greatly complicate these cargo moves. No one is happy with the cascading effects of re-routing and schedule slippage. While state-level departments of transportation control permitting and heavy-haul corridors, the federal Department of Transportation’s recently reinvigorated project to develop a national multimodal freight network, now in the Request for Information stage, could, when finalized, be a source of influence and information for heavy-haul stakeholders. But to help shape this project, the DOT needs to hear from the heavy-haul community. During this session, Allison Dane Camden, the DOT’s deputy assistant secretary for multimodal freight infrastructure and policy, will discuss the multimodal freight network project and the information her office needs from industry to develop a critical freight network useful for all stakeholders, including out-of-gauge and heavy-haul transport by truck, rail, and barge. Allison will then join a roundtable discussion of these issues with a roster of experienced industry members.
