Freight Planning

KYTC is pleased to announce the release of the 2016 Kentucky Freight Plan.  

The 2016 Kentucky Freight Plan is a high-level inventory and policy guidance document.  The purposes of the plan are to present information about the current state of operations of freight in Kentucky and to develop system-wide strategies and policies consistent with the goals of the KYTC Strategic Plan, the Kentucky Long Range Strategic Transportation Plan, and the United States National Freight Policy.
The KYTC’s mission is to provide a safe, efficient, environmentally sound, and fiscally responsible transportation system that delivers economic opportunity and enhances the quality of life in Kentucky.  The KYTC’s goal for freight transportation is to provide a safe, reliable, efficient, and effective transportation system for the movement of passengers and freight within the commonwealth as well as connect Kentucky to domestic and international markets.  
The KYTC recognizes that an effective multimodal freight system will help improve public safety, alleviate highway congestion, and contribute to economic development.
