Understanding the Impacts and Benefits of Freight Capacity Improvements: Environmental Justice and Freight Infrastructure (CM | 1.5)
June 15, 2012 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The purpose of the webinar will be to orient planners to the issues of environmental justice as they relate specifically to freight operations and freight infrastructure, including air and sea ports, railroads, intermodal facilities, inland warehouse and distribution centers, and the roads and bridges that serve them. To help planners understand and address community concerns, presenters will discuss the origins and current status of federal environmental justice policy and offer infrastructure case studies from the Chicago area and Southern California.
