The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) continues to be a leader and partner in delivering effective transportation solutions for a safe and connected Nevada. The Nevada State Freight Plan (NSFP) was completed in 2016, which provides a framework to improve freight mobility to foster continued growth and economic diversification in Nevada. The NSFP proposed strategies and implementation actions that will help Nevada advance the state’s freight system to efficiently and effectively facilitate goods movement while capitalizing on related future economic opportunities.
The Freight Program Implementation Project is the next step in furthering the NSFP to start implementing the recommended actions to fulfill the state’s Freight Strategic initiatives and overarching goals and objectives to improve freight mobility and be a globally competitive Nevada. The project kicked off in February 2019 and consists of 10 total tasks to be completed over a 2-year period.
