Urban is excited to be at the 101st Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.! We are looking forward to many of the discussions on smart design and how the infrastructure bill will impact our future. Featured speakers include Anne Strauss-Wieder of the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority and U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. Urban’s attending staff, which include Multimodal Transportation Engineer Andrew Thompson and Planner Daniel Hutton, are excited to help advance research and learn more about the best practices of transportation planning, roundabouts, and design control strategies.
The staff of our firm have long been involved with TRB, and are looking forward to learning and connecting with others at the conference.
