WTS Northwest Region Supports Transportation and Communities Summit at PSU



Sept. 15, 2015--The WTS International Northwest Region Council recently participated in the Transportation and Communities Summit at the Transportation Research and Education Center for Portland State University (TREC).

This annual event brings together academic and transportation professionals to advance the state of the art by accelerating new research into practice and shaping the agenda for future research. The summit features a plenary session, a luncheon program and a variety of workshop sessions.

The TREC program also includes a WTS-sponsored thesis competition in which students presented three-minute research papers. The top three presentations were awarded prizes by the WTS Northwest Region. The judges panel included WTS Board Director, Paula Hammond, and WTS Northern Utah Past-President, Robin Hutcheson. 

The top three prizes were awarded to:
