Freight Planning

Freight transportation is a key driver to the economic success of the North Front Range. With a large growth in population, housing, and business on the horizon, an increased focus on freight concerns is needed. The NFRMPO is working to integrate freight considerations into the transportation planning process.

Freight Northern Colorado (FNC) Plan

Logo for Freight Northern Colorado with icon of train and NFRMPO logoThe purpose of Freight Northern Colorado (FNC) is to provide a guide for the improvement of the overall freight system within the North Front Range region. While not required by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), having a regional freight plan positions the region to have a list of potential projects and a foundation to move forward for the pursuit of funds for freight and freight benefiting projects.

FNC was adopted by the NFRMPO Planning Council on August 1, 2019.
