Geographic Area Covered: Portions of the nine county DVRPC region, all in close proximity to the Delaware River; specifically, Burlington and Camden counties in New Jersey, and Bucks, Delaware, and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania

Abstract: This project studies 30.34 miles of highways that connect 11 major intermodal facilities to the National Highway System. NHS connectors are a vital piece of the supply chain throughout our country and often go overlooked in the traditional transportation planning process. The analytical work includes an inventory of existing conditions both of a physical and operational nature. Most connectors were found to be in fair condition, with those connecting to rail yards and one airport in better condition than those connecting to sea ports. The scope of recommendations includes administrative updates, suggested highway projects, and meetings with owners on how to resolve operational issues. This project was conceived of and supported by DVRPC's freight advisory committee, The Delaware Valley Goods Movement Task Force

Key Words: NHS Connector, goods movement, truck travel, intermodal freight facilities, rail / truck / port / terminals, airports, highway conditions.
