Interstate 94 is a key freight corridor for goods transportation between Minneapolis and Chicago. This project proposes to utilize the FPM data and information from ATRI to study the I-94/I-90 freight corridor. Freight performance will be evaluated and analyzed to compare truck travel time with respect to duration, reliability, and seasonal variation. This data analysis process can be used for freight transportation planning and decision-making and potentially will be scalable for nationwide deployment and implementation on the country's significant freight corridors.
