Seaport-Surface Transportation Access and Air Quality


Seaports are dependent upon the supporting surface transportation network. Where port cargo volume is growing in already air-polluted urban areas, increased highway and rail traffic is perceived as exacerbating air quality conditions. In some seaport locations, stringent air quality control measures may impact operations and access, thereby possibly causing serious negative impacts on the economy. In still other areas, inadequate air quality controls may inadvertently foster more air pollution.
