GAO: National freight plan needs to address congestion
Truck and rail traffic are expected to grow, good news for the economy as well as the carriers, but the benefits are not without drawbacks. With growth comes congestion, particularly in cities, and transportation planners need more information and better direction from Congress on how to manage the problem. That's the message from the Government Accountability Office, in response to a request by Sen. John Walsh, D-Mont., for an assessment of national freight flows and their impact on congestion.
