2018 Ozarks Chapter of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (OCITE) Technical Conference
Thursday, July 19, 2018
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. CDT
Springfield, MO, United States
The planning-related educational objective of this event is to enhance knowledge of local transportation planning issues and projects.
This one-day conference will offer multiple sessions concerning transportation planning and engineering issues. Around that central theme, sessions will be offered that illustrate how hazard mitigation planning and environmental planning are related to, and inform, transportation planning decisions. Environmental planning topics addressed during the seminar will include those that deal with the nexus of transportation infrastructure and wildlife, both aquatic and terrestrial, as well as the pollinators and migratory butterflies that utilize roadside vegetation.
Through case studies of local and regional projects, attendees will learn how infrastructure inventories and analyses, and the Americans with Disabilities Act, are being used in our area to make planning decisions for the protection of human health, safety, and welfare. Sessions will also cover the gathering of stakeholder input and how to manage expectations when project delays occur.
Attendees will also gain an understanding of present-day funding for transportation projects in Missouri and how they can become eligible for certain funding programs.
