Continuing Action – Support the Development of Policies, Programs, and Funding for Moving Goods

SANDAG staff has worked with the U.S. Department of Transportation regarding the National Strategic Freight Plan to ensure that the San Diego region’s freight infrastructure is adequately represented within national surface transportation programs including Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century and Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act. SANDAG staff has participated in the California Sustainable Freight Initiative through the California Freight Advisory Committee, white paper development, pilot project development, and through the submission of comment letters on discussion documents and technical reports.

SANDAG and Caltrans secured a $49 million FASTLANE grant to cover construction costs on Phase 2 of SR 11. SANDAG has also been participating in the development of the California A State Sustainable Freight Strategy.
