  • Abstract:
    The dependence on transportation is significant for the 20 counties that make up eastern Washington. A vital agricultural production area including grains, fruits, and vegetables; as well as livestock and forest products, these industries of the region must have access to markets outside of the state to survive. The current transportation system in eastern Washington is comprised of four primary modes: water, railroad, roadway, and air transport. The transportation system is inherently dynamic and constantly changing. The Eastern Washington Intermodal Transportation Study (EWITS)is a six-year study funded jointly by the Federal government and the Washington State to evaluate intermodal and transportation infrastructure and capacity needs in eastern Washington. This report summarizes the work that has been completed to date. The first section of this report presents brief summaries of all the EWITS research reports and working papers and the project objective it accomplished. The variety and the volume of work performed under EWITS illustrates the "adaptive research" approach employed by the project. Any new or pressing transportation issues could be examined as the project progressed. The second section presents three case studies as demonstrations of the types of analysis that can be accomplished with the information collected under EWITS. 3 Appendices, 6 tables, 185 p.
