  • Abstract:
    The relational Multimodal Freight Database (MFD) was developed as part of Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Research Project 0-6297 entitled Freight Planning Factors Impacting Texas Commodity Flows, conducted by the Center for Transportation Research (CTR). The objective was to capture relevant publicly available freight data required for updating TxDOT freight models and studies. Implementation Project 5-6297-01, entitled Multimodal Freight Database, extends the work that has been conducted as part of TxDOT Research Project 0-6297. Specifically, the objectives of Implementation Project 5-6297-01 are to disseminate information about the MFD by hosting six workshops (Task 1), host a webinar to demonstrate the MFD to selected FHWA (Federal Highway Administration) freight leaders (Task 2), and update the MFD given the feedback received during Tasks 1 and 2. This document summarizes the outcome of Task 2: Conduct Multimodal Freight Database Webinar. The objective of Task 2 was to demonstrate the MFD to FHWA freight leaders and TxDOT Division staff to gain support for the development of a national database and to discuss the integration of proprietary data into the existing MFD. The webinar was hosted by Mr. Kirk Fauver (Statewide Planning Engineer, FHWA) and Ms. Jolanda Prozzi (Assistant Director, CTR). The webinar was conducted using Adobe Connect on December 8, 2011 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. (CST).
