I-81 Corridor Coalition to gather in Hagerstown

March 17, 2013

The I-81 Corridor Coalition will hold its spring conference March 24 to 26 at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center in Hagerstown. Approximately 150 people are expected to attend. 

Founded in 2007, the coalition is a partnership of local, regional and state organizations that are all interested in transportation planning. The coalition includes local governments, metropolitan planning organizations and state transportation departments, as well as private sector and nonprofit organizations. These partners are from the six states the corridor runs through: New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia and Tennessee.

Interstate 81, which is 855 miles in length and traverses six states, is part of the Eisenhower National System of Interstate Highways. The highway is one of the nation’s leading conduits for goods movement and truck traffic.

The coalition last met in Hagerstown, a central location for all partners, in 2010. The agenda for the group’s annual meeting includes presentations, workshops and breakout sessions at Hager Hall.
