Exploring transportation’s future at Ohio Transportation Engineer’s Conference

Posted in: Highways, Municipal


OTEC-2_body-300x400It’s been a great week in Columbus at the 69th Annual Ohio Transportation Engineer’s Conference, one of the nation’s largest transportation conferences. Sponsored by the Ohio Department of Transportation and Ohio State University, the program addresses the latest technology and policies within the transportation industry. This year’s theme was Ohio’s Future Rides on Transportation, and all sessions and exhibitions focused on enhancing and improving transportation safety and accessibility to enhance Ohio’s future.

I also had the distinct pleasure of speaking on Tuesday afternoon in the “Alternative Project Delivery” panel. We discussed best practices in design-build, the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) certification program and shared examples from North Carolina and other states.

We had a great time exploring Ohio’s transportation future at the conference, and we hope to see you there next year!
