Our Vision

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is updating the State Freight Plan, which was adopted in 2018. The State Freight Plan is a long-range multimodal plan that addresses the state's freight transportation needs and provides a vision for WisDOT’s freight program for the next eight years.

About

Our Freight Future

We update our State’s Freight Plan every four years so that it accurately reflects, considers, and addresses our state’s current and future freight needs. This update will continue to focus on the needs of state highways and local roads, freight rail, aviation, harbors, and intermodal connections. Our findings will help WisDOT integrate freight improvements in future construction projects and prioritize future freight-related projects for funding. These future investments will position Wisconsin to remain competitive in the global marketplace.

The plan will:

Include new and updated information since the previous statewide freight plan was released, including an overview of the current multimodal freight system
Assess statewide freight needs and issues through data analysis and stakeholder engagement
Guide statewide investments to improve the multimodal freight system, including roadways and roadside facilities, railroads, regional airports, ports and pipelines
Engage and reflect the interests of a wide array of freight stakeholders
Align policies and recommendations with Connect 2050, Wisconsin’s statewide long-range transportation plan

Stakeholders

Our Engagement Plan

Our team knows that the best source of data for this kind of planning process is engagement with statewide stakeholders to learn more about what they see and experience daily. Stakeholder participation is encouraged throughout the development of the plan.

The plan development process will include ongoing dialogue with the WisDOT Freight Advisory Committee, which comprises stakeholders from the public and private sectors. This committee will provide guidance during the planning process, helping to identify potential issues with the plan while developing a shared vision for freight transportation in Wisconsin.
Throughout the plan development process, there will be various opportunities to provide your perspectives on Wisconsin’s freight system and how you use it, as well as any issues, needs, concerns, and ideas you have for improving the freight system.

Anyone wishing to express comments, ideas, alternatives, or concerns during the planning process is encouraged to contact WisDOT at freight@dot.wi.gov.

Engagement opportunities will be posted here as they become available during the planning process.
