DC/Baltimore Area Event Alert: UMD’s Advanced Transportation Technologies Event – Thursday, August 28

UMD’s upcoming Advanced Transportation Technologies event is taking place in College Park, Md. on the morning of Aug. 28.

This event will feature UMD’s first-ever Labor Day weekend traffic forecast (issued by their Center of Advanced Transportation Technology Lab). Even more, each of their three labs will speak to their specific capabilities and major projects, ranging from traffic visualization and data fusion integration, to emergency preparedness/evacuation routes and innovative intersection design for congestion mitigation. The event will be attended by media and the general public, as well as regional alumni working in transportation/transportation engineering.

In addition to the three A. James Clark School of Engineering transportation labs, there will also be invitations to visitors to tour the Metropolitan Area Transportation Operations Coordination (MATOC), a key player in the D.C. metro area’s coordinated incident management practices for both day-to-day operations as well as large-scale regional incidents (such as hurricanes and floods).

If anyone is particularly interested in visiting a specific lab or talking with a researcher in a particular focus area, is interested in the morning schedule of events, or wishes to RSVP, please click here: UMD-Transportation-Day-082814-press-release.

Let's highlight another part of the #transportation industry - passenger aviation - that so many of us rely on for business travel and personal adventures. How many #young #professionals do we have in the #aviation sector? #transport #adventure #cloudy☁️ @bwi_airport 🎶Rivers and roads, rivers and roads.

The main line was completed in 1923 after 9 years of construction; President Warren G. Harding traveled to Alaska for the occasion and personally drove in the Golden Spike to finish the job. In 1943, the Railroad completed a 12-mile spur to the tiny port town of Whittier. In total, the Alaska Railroad provides regularly scheduled passenger service along 482 miles of track – an expanse greater than the distance between #Boston and #Washington, D.C. #friday #trains #transportation Check this amazing #sunset shot, shared by our equally amazing Director of Chapter Development @wbybanana.
