Intermodal Connector Analysis on the National Highway System - completed by NOACA staff in March 2009. National Highway System intermodal connectors are the public roads leading to major intermodal facilities from the National Highway System (NHS). The NHS is approximately 160,000 miles of roadway important to our nation’s economy, defense and mobility. Intermodal connectors are a significant part of the transportation system and are necessary for timely and reliable movement of goods and passengers. The U.S. Department of Transportation, state departments of transportation and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) have the task of designating NHS connectors. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) defines the minimum amount of freight transfer activity needed at an intermodal facility to designate a connector to that facility as part of the NHS. The criteria are high so that only connectors to major facilities receive the NHS intermodal connector designation.
