    Save your spot for ASCE’s International Conference on Transportation & Development

    The Transportation & Development Institute (T&DI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is organizing ASCE’s International Conference on Transportation & Development (ICTD) this year, which will take place in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania this July.

    The ICTD is set to be held from July 15-18 at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburg Downtown Hotel. This year’s conference is co-chaired by Yinhai Wang, a professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington and the director of PacTrans UTC Region 10, and Mike McNerney, a research professor at the University of Texas at Arlington. Additionally, the two are responsible for organizing the UTC Technology Transfer Workshop.

    Technology continues to develop in our world at an increasingly rapid rate, meaning that there is a growing need to asses and prepare for the inevitable impact it will have on transportation and development.

    The ICTD gives practitioners, researchers, leaders, policy makers, engineers, planners, students, and other individuals that are interested and invested in the realm of transportation and development the opportunity to exchange information, share their best practices, and advance their knowledge on the transportation sector.

    The conference will feature a variety of speakers, designated workshops, and technical programs and tours, all allowing participants to learn about innovations in technology and their impact on transportation, network with professionals that are heavily involved with infrastructure, get updated on new policies and initiatives, and earn professional development hours.

    The T&DI of ASCE is an organization devoted to transportation, development, and the professionals within the industry. It is one of the ASCE’s nine specialty institutions and is dedicated to promoting professional excellence in the realm of transportation engineering, urban planning, and overall development.
