As part of Infrastructure Week, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials along with the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association are holding a free live-streaming webinar on May 14 investigation what the future may hold for highway funding.
That webinar – entitled The State of Highway Investment: Plans, Promises and Predictions – will focus on both current trends and future plans for federal, state, and local surface transportation investments, especially in terms of what's happening now with "road dollars" and what's likely to happen in the near future.
The panelists leading the discussion for this webinar topic are: Pat Jones, IBTTA's executive director and chief executive officer; Jim Tymon, AASHTO's chief operating officer and director of policy and management; and Weifeng Zhong, research fellow-economic policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI).
Over the past several years, more and more state legislatures are making efforts to enact or actively consider proposals to increase funding or provide additional financing for transportation infrastructure. But how do state departments of transportation help support such legislative initiatives?
