RSG's work with the Capital District Transportation Committee on the future of freight in the Albany, NY area was featured in media. The article highlights that the amount of freight shipped through the area is projected to grow by 67 percent over the next 15 years. This projection is part of a larger effort RSG has led to craft a regional freight and goods movement plan, including freight-supportive projects, policies, and strategies to support the region’s economic growth and quality of life. This is one of many freight-related studies RSG is involved in throughout the US.
