Council on Water Transportation
Avital Barnea, Program Manager for Freight
The Council on Water Transportation addresses all policy, regulatory, safety, and enforcement issues impacting the nation’s coastal, inland, and Great Lakes waterways’ ability to move goods efficiently on the national freight transportation network.
Council on Water Transportation members include any state transportation department that elects to serve on the committee. States may also designate an alternate state-level agency to serve on their behalf.
* Further amendments to the Council’s charter were submitted in June 2019 for consideration by the AASHTO Strategic Management Committee
