Freight Advisory Committee Development
One of the recommendations of this plan is to develop a Kentucky Freight Advisory Committee. It is KYTC’s continued desire to coordinate with the freight industry in Kentucky.  As part of this ongoing effort, KYTC is asking for industry guidance on developing a Kentucky Freight Advisory Committee to report, advise, and instruct state officials about industry needs, innovation, and planning.  The FAST Act encourages each state to establish a Freight Advisory Committee to consist of a representative cross-section of public and private multimodal freight stakeholders [49 U.S.C. 70201]. 
Future Freight Functions
KYTC also seeks your input in prioritizing freight activities for the near future.  Please take a few minutes to complete this brief survey (5 minutes) to direct KYTC’s next freight efforts. 
Please use this 30-day Freight Plan review period to read through the plan and send any comments about the document, complete the survey, and consider serving on Kentucky’s Freight Advisory Committee.
