Subcommittee Content Descriptions

Choose from the following areas of interest:

1. CADD Mapping & Survey

Throughout the project lifecycle, CADD, Mapping, and Survey derived products drive the world of digital infrastructure and design. These tools, workflows, and processes enable planning, design, construction, and asset management staff to make actionable decisions with real world data in an efficient and effective manner.

2. Construction

Engaged in the process of creating & building infrastructure which includes procuring and bidding projects, partnering and dispute resolution, specification modifications, advancement in construction technologies, and highlighting innovative projects and alternative delivery methods to successfully deliver and complete construction projects.

3. Environmental

An interdisciplinary approach to providing technical expertise/review, policy development and training of federal, state, and local environmental regulations to achieve a safe, efficient and environmentally compliant intermodal transportation system.  Using best practices and working toward consensus among transportation interests, Environmental minimizes, avoids, and preserves natural resources throughout the project development process.  

4. Finance & Career Development

Develops new and innovative approaches to managing, maintaining, operating, and building our infrastructure to reduce costs, enhance efficiency and generate revenue. Career Development is important to ensure the transportation engineers of tomorrow have the training and tools necessary to be able to improve and enhance the transportation system of tomorrow.

5. Geotechnical

Geotechnical Engineering is the exploration and design of the foundation support for all transportation structures and roadways, and the characterization and remediation of geohazards that threaten our transportation assets, considering both traditional and innovative approaches.

6. Hydraulics

Hydraulics provides cost effective and environmentally sound solutions to surface and subsurface roadway drainage by using innovative methods and materials that maintains maintenance of a safe, accessible transportation system.

7. Modal Options

The efficient and effective movement of people and goods requires a balanced seamless transportation system that is efficient, flexible and environmental sustainable offering a variety of transportation modes, including highways, air, rail, water, trails, and pipeline.
