This document summarizes the December 6, 2016, Mid-Atlantic Megaregion Workshop titled "Are We Ready for the Rise of the Megaregion?" The Workshop brought together local, State, and Federal transportation decisionmakers to identify how States, MPOs, and other planning partners can better connect with each other, coordinate statewide freight plan development, and identify common approaches to address traffic congestion and aging infrastructure at a megaregion level. The Workshop took place in King of Prussia (Greater Philadelphia), Pennsylvania.
Transportation officials and planning representatives explored emerging trends, new technologies, planning practices, and opportunities for multijurisdictional coordination. Topics of the Workshop include activities and perspectives of the I-95 Corridor Coalition, current freight planning efforts for States and MPOs in the Megaregion, connected and autonomous vehicles, and freight planning provisions of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation ACT (FAST).
