National Highway System (NHS) connectors are the public roads leading to major intermodal terminals. Although they account for less than 1 percent of NHS mileage, NHS Connectors are key conduits for the timely and reliable delivery of goods.

The Office of Freight Management and Operations undertook two studies to evaluate the condition of NHS connectors and identify needed improvements. These and other related studies are available here.
