The annual MassDOT Transportation Innovation Conference provides a forum for innovative transportation systems, management ideas, and initiatives. Each year, the conference provides an important opportunity for transportation practitioners to share knowledge, sponsor peer-to-peer learning, and collaborate on issues of mutual interest. A specific focus of this year’s conference will be on MassDOT’s investment in infrastructure.
Conference participants will have the opportunity to discuss the advantages and challenges associated with the innovative methods and technologies being presented in the following categories: • Innovations in Construction Methods
• Promoting a Safe and Equitable Transportation Culture
• Streamlining the Project Delivery Process to Improve Infrastructure
• Best Practices in Municipal and Regional Transportation
• New Techniques in Design and Materials
• Implementing New Technologies
The event is open to all transportation practitioners from federal, state, and local transportation agencies, Metropolitan Planning Organizations, transit agencies, academia, and private industry.
