Freight transportation systems - including roads, bridges, and highways, to railroads, pipelines, and ports, to factories, warehouses, and terminals - are critical to supporting and growing more jobs, more regional domestic product, and a larger tax base. The multimodal freight transportation system allows business in Washington to effectively compete in regional and global markets.
