The St. Louis Regional Freightway was established as a recommendation from a 2013 regional freight study and was approved by the region’s metropolitan planning organization East-West Gateway Council of Governments.  In September 2014, East-West Gateway voted to have Bi-State Development (BSD) lead the new regional freight district, setting the stage for the launch of the St. Louis Regional Freightway.
