Study Description

There is significant interest by State DOTs to convene conferences with the purpose of discussing specific transportation related issues. These issues are common problems that states would like to meet and share information for their research and technology transfer activities within their state department of transportation, FHWA, TRB and other public agencies and national or regional associations.

Objectives

This Transportation Pooled Fund will provide a means to cosponsor official TRB conferences of specific interest to individual states. These conferences will benefit the ongoing development of research and technology transfer activities within each individual State Department of Transportation, FHWA, TRB, other public agencies and national or regional associations.

Scope of Work

1. Submit conference topics to the TRB Executive Committee for consideration and selection.

2. Once approved, TRB will facilitate the conference coordination for interested states. Conferences will be scheduled, venues will be selected, and interested states will work with TRB to develop the format and agenda.

3. TRB will use committed partner funds to coordinate and conduct the conference. States will transfer funds for meetings of which they have an interest. State funds will only be used for the conferences they are interested in.

4. At the conclusion of each conference, a summary report of the proceedings will be posted on the TPF website in an effort to enhance the concept of information sharing.

Comments

This will be a one-year project with likely annual renewals. The proposed funds will be used to cover all or part of the cost of the conference logistics (i.e., planning, travel, registration fees and reports). Note: A minimum of 90% of the funds for each conference will be used to offset TRB's costs. A maximum of 10% can be used to reimburse travel expenses.

The following two workshops are planned under the proposed project:

Data and Tools for Linking Goods Movement, Air Quality, and Transportation Infrastructure Decisions

Date: June 2-3, 2009

This workshop is designed to develop a dialogue among researchers, governments and private industry on data sources to understand freight transportation activity and the relationships between goods movement, air quality, and transportation infrastructure. Transportation professionals interested in current data availability and in developing improved sources should attend. While the focus will be on California, the approaches are (or soon will be) applicable throughout the country.

Integrated Corridor Systems Management Modeling - Best Practices Workshop

Date: September 14-15, 2009

Ever increasing levels of congestion along major highway corridors threaten the quality of life and economic vitality of the regions. As federal, state, and local agencies confront mobility challenges on major multimodal corridors, a national workshop on integrated corridor systems management and modeling is being organized that will bring together researchers, practioners, policy makers, and software tool developers across a broad range of disciplinary perspectives and contextual experiences. The workshop will provide an opportunity for the professional and stakeholder community to share corridor study experiences, identify best practices, discuss data needs and collection methods, and develop a collective research agenda on integrated corridor systems management and modeling.
