"As the nation grows, the need for better transportation and improved development grows, too. ASCE and civil engineers have the responsibility to address the changing demands on our infrastructure systems. Houston, TX, is the perfect location for the upcoming International Conference on Transportation and Development (ICTD 2016). The 4th largest city in the US is a working laboratory of how growing cities can use creative alternatives to address increased traffic and higher demand for both redevelopment and new development. Come to Houston to learn about new techniques from world-class experts, and then, observe how theory translates into practice. Meet like-minded civil engineers who face challenges in their own communities. Gain an understanding of how sustainable practices can benefit your projects and your city. We need to rebuild our infrastructure, but we can build it better." D. Wayne Klotz, P.E., D.WRE, Pres.09.ASCE, ENV SP, President of Klotz Associates
"The International Conference on Transportation and Development (ICTD 2016) is an excellent venue to find the latest information, innovations, technologies, and opportunities affecting today’s transportation networks. This conference is one of the few that combines practitioners, researchers, designers, and contractors solving today’s problems with an eye toward the future. Dealing with design, sustainability, construction, operation, rehabilitation and reuse, and emerging technologies, this conference gives you many needed tools to stay competitive and drive change."Roddy L. Boggus, NCARB, AIA, Senior Vice President / Global Aviation Market Leader, Aviation Director, Parsons Brinckerhoff
"Transportation funding and mobility continue to be great challenges facing communities of all sizes across the country. Nowhere have these issues been more salient than in Texas where job and population growth are straining the transportation system. The International Conference on Transportation and Development (ICTD 2016) in Houston promises to provide a front row seat for researchers and practitioners alike to discuss advances and solutions to the challenges we face across all modes of our transportation system. Major roadway capacity and mobility improvement projects such as the Grand Parkway in the Houston region and the LBJ TEXpress Lanes in the Dallas region will provide a great backdrop for a meaningful dialogue and exchange of ideas."Jeff Borowiec, Ph.D., Research Scientist, Texas A&M Transportation Institute
