The Port of Virginia is one of the largest ports on the East Coast. Only a day’s drive from two-thirds of the U.S. population, the port moves more than 1.6 million containers each year – over 60% of that by commercial port trucking.
In order to support project prioritization, ongoing studies, and federal funding applications, Hampton Roads planners needed to know which routes were commonly used by port trucking.
Learn how planners used Big Data to:
- Identify which highway supported over 50% of port trucking
- Confirm a $1-billion improvement investment
- Score potential projects, rewarding those that increase access to port facilities
