Description:
Abstract:
The Washington State Freight and Goods Transportation System (FGTS) classifies truck freight corridors into different categories based on the annual gross tonnage moved. The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) designates and updates the FGTS every two years.
Purpose:
The FGTS is used to establish funding eligibility for Freight Mobility Strategic Investment Board grants, support transportation planning processes, and plan for pavement needs and upgrades.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
An Excel spreadsheet containing state route identifiers and beginning and ending ARM values for freight classification segments along state highways was placed as an event theme using ESRI software and converted to a state route feature class. Similar spreadsheets from the County Road Administration Board containing Mobility data (including freight classifications) was placed as event themes using ESRI software and the WSDOT Local Agency Public Roads (LAPR) dataset and converted to county feature classes. Geometry segments contained in the LAPR for city freight route segments were extracted to a city freight route dataset. These feature classes were merged and attributes added and updated to produce a statewide freight and goods dataset.
