KAI's Transportation Education Series provides interactive presentation sessions intended to promote professional development and advancements in transportation engineering and planning.
Participants will earn a total of 1 professional development hour (PDH).
This workshop will focus on presenting new and innovative performance measures that are emerging for us to monitor, plan, and design our transportation system.
Travel time reliability will be a particular focus and we will include an specific case study on its application within the TRIP97 project from Central Oregon. TRIP97 is a collaborative effort between local, county, and state transportation agencies in Central Oregon with the goal of creating new transportation solutions for safety, congestion, and the betterment of the region’s economy and quality of life.
