Research Program Design---Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. Peer Exchange on Transportation Investment for Economic Development: Making the Case

This research is a peer exchange designed to bring together teams comprised of state economic development executives and transportation agency leaders and communications specialists who jointly are responsible for making decisions and communicating with stakeholders to deliver a safe, effective, environmentally responsible, and fiscally sound transportation system that enhances economic well-being and competitiveness. Each state's 2- or 3-person team will present a case example illustrating how transportation investment was used to address an economic development opportunity or challenge. The workshop is scheduled for August, 2015. Workshop discussions will be documented to inform others regarding issues encountered and effective communication strategies that officials may be able to use in working with their various stakeholders.
