Freight: The Movement of Goods

OKI Is Currently Developing a NEW Freight Plan for the Region!

Phase 1

(July 2021 – June 2022):

  • a historical examination of the region’s freight conditions over the past decade will be conducted,
  • an existing condition and needs analysis will be performed, and
  • a list of freight improvements to address current challenges will be generated.

Phase 2

(July 2022 – June 2023):

Phase 2 will focus on understanding the evolution and future movement of goods to identify needed improvements out to year 2050.

Please direct all freight transportation planning comments or questions to:
Robyn Bancroft, OKI Strategic Initiatives Manager, at rbancroft@oki.org or call (513) 619-7662.
