Ten state DoT senior executives kicked off ITS America 2016 San Jose yesterday by participating in a roundtable discussion about how to best prepare their state's infrastructure to meet and support tomorrow's ITS mobility demands.
Sponsored and moderated by HNTB, the discussion centered around best practices and lessons learned when launching ITS projects in their respective states. ITS America and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) co-hosted the event.
"State DoTs are on the front lines of simultaneously providing safe and efficient transportation networks through building and maintaining their state's traditional infrastructure while planning to meet the challenge of future smart mobility through intelligent transportation systems," said Regina Hopper, president and CEO of ITS America, in a press release before the meeting.
DOT executives from Ohio, Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Oregon, New Jersey, Washington, New Mexico, Tennessee and Michigan participated in the roundtable.
