4/21 - Transportation Implementation with Transport Chicago (CM | 1.5)

Updated: Apr 20

The APA Chicago Metro Section and Transport Chicago invite you to join a virtual session on transportation implementation. With limited project funding, high infrastructure capital costs, and bureaucratic red tape, transportation agencies are using rapid deployment projects to overcome objections, test innovative solutions and refine designs before they become permanent. These pilots allow agencies to move more quickly and in a more responsive manner than would normally be permitted with traditional design/bid/build projects. Join us to learn how transportation agencies are leveraging these tools to solve their most pressing and of the moment transportation issues and what lessons they have learned in doing so.

DATE: Wednesday, April 21, 2021 - 12pm start

PLACE: Virtual. Webinar link will be posted 1 week prior.

CREDITS: 1.5 AICP CM Credits

COST: $15 for professionals, $10 for members, $5 for students
