The Washington State Legislature has recognized that Washington State is uniquely positioned as a gateway to the global economy. Washington, as one of the most trade-dependent states per capita in the nation, is highly dependent on an efficient multi modal transportation network in order to remain competitive. The vitality of the state's economy is placed at risk by growing traffic congestion that impedes the safe and efficient movement of goods. Freight corridors that serve international and domestic interstate and intrastate trade and those freight corridors that enhance the state's competitive position through regional and global gateways are strategically important.
The County Freight and Goods System (CFGS) is made up of 10,754 centerline miles of county road, 26.9% of the 39,852 total miles of county road. 9,217 miles of the CFGS are classified as arterials and collectors. This represents 85.7% of the County Freight and Goods System.
