The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is partnering with Washington State University in 2013 to do a freight study on US 395 between Deer Park and the Canadian border.

WSU Freight Policy Institute staff members and volunteers from area Lions Clubs will ask truck drivers to stop for a few minutes to be interviewed about their route and cargo. The one-day surveys will be conducted starting in early 2013 at three locations along the route and spaced through the year to capture seasonal freight movements.

Freight studies help transportation agencies understand how the highway system is used so they can consider that when planning future highway projects.
