2021 Vermont Freight Plan (underway)

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) is updating the Vermont Freight Plan and concurrently updating the Vermont Rail Plan.  These updates are closely related by the importance of freight moved by rail.

Vermont’s highways and bridges, railroads, and airports all play a role in the transport of freight.  Freight can be many different things, from timber transported by truck to a sawmill for lumber production, to electronics ordered online and delivered to your doorstep.  Raw milk for cheese producers, hops for breweries, and the groceries you purchase at your local grocery store are all freight at some point.

The Vermont Freight Plan identifies freight system issues and needs, and subsequent policies and strategies to guide freight-related transportation investments in Vermont.  The update of the Freight Plan will be guided by a Freight Plan Advisory Committee and outreach to public and private stakeholders.
