Freight provides the food we eat and the supplies that keep our industries operating. While freight is a sign of a healthy economy, it can come with negative impacts that must be addressed to maximize the benefits of freight movement.
We believe the only good plan is one that is implemented. SRF’s freight team is focused on creating long-term partnerships to plan, design, and implement opportunities that improve economic development and quality of life. The process begins by creating performance-based freight plans that identify projects and policy initiatives to support the retention and expansion of an area’s key industries. Working with public and private sector partners, SRF focuses on developing project- and site-level plans and securing environmental clearance.
In addition, our grant writing team has extensive experience positioning projects to be competitive for national discretionary grant programs like TIGER and FASTLANES. Over the past decade, our funding experts have secured more than $250 million in local, state, and federal funding for our clients – this includes five successful TIGER grants.
