Abstract This project was undertaken to assist in identifying landside transportation projects that will better position the state of Texas to benefit from the expansion of the Panama Canal through increases in exports and imports. Studies and plans over the past 10 years have examined different aspects of the freight system in the state, including ports, railroads, highways, and intermodal facilities. This project summarizes the key elements addressed in these previous studies, especially those related to landside access to ports. The results of this review were summarized and a searchable Excel spreadsheet was developed containing information on the identified landside access projects. The spreadsheet includes information on the project type, the issues addressed, estimated cost, funding sources, and other related characteristics.
