The transportation sector is evolving — and quickly. Populations are growing, which means the demand for new and improved infrastructure is growing too.
What does the future of transportation look like? Well, it looks like a 40% increase in freight tons within 3 decades¹, plus an increased demand on air travel and mass transit. With the current proposed infrastructure bill in the U.S., and Canada’s Transport 2030 plan, heavy investments in developing transportation infrastructure are on the horizon for North America — ensuring communities have access to the methods of movement they need in our ever-growing world.
Smart, reliable transportation is crucial to our future. And building it right is even more crucial. With location data from Nearmap, you can be sure you’re building right and capturing the fine details.
Here’s a glimpse at the transportation networks of tomorrow, underway across North America and captured by Nearmap:

Revamping the I-5 at the Port of Tacoma in Washington State, which will streamline how freight trucks move in and out of the port.
