Interstate 80 Freight Corridor Analysis - FHWA-WY-09/09F
This report is the result of a two-part study intended to provide input to WYDOT’s long-term planning process for the I-80 facility. The first phase of the study involved an on-the-ground freight survey of more than 2,000 truckers traveling eastbound and westbound on Interstate 80. The second phase involved analysis of macro-trends that will influence future freight volumes along the I-80 corridor through Wyoming. The study uses a scenario analysis framework to combine data and insight from these two phases to yield useful input and a potential freight planning framework for WYDOT planners and decision makers.
