Over the next 30 years, it’s predicted that highway congestion in Midwestern states will increase from 2 percent to 9 percent, the U.S. population will grow to over 70 million people, and overall freight volume will increase by 45 percent. Together, these factors position the St. Louis region to play a critical role in the national freight network.

The St. Louis Regional Freightway, an enterprise of Bi-State Development, understands the issues related to the projected growth and has been instrumental in identifying and working to promote the highest priority regional infrastructure projects through public / private partnerships.

Join Mary Lamie, Executive Director of the St. Louis Regional Freightway, to learn how our region has transformed into a premiere freight hub and how it’s growing the region’s agriculture, life science sector.
