From Summit site: "The 16th Annual Transportation and Infrastructure Summit features a prestigious group of state, national and international dignitaries presented by the City of Irving. This group’s contributions help to develop potential responses to meet the challenges and opportunities for the future of transportation in the United States and across the globe. The purpose of the Summit is to educate policy makers from all levels of government about current transportation issues throughout the world. The goal is to learn, share dialogue, advocate and network with the nation’s transportation and public policy leaders, private sector leaders and trade associations and groups. The Summit is very unique in that it brings together the leading transportation and infrastructure officials from the current Administration, Congress, and State legislatures, providing the opportunity to dialogue personally with those who have a direct influence on future policy decisions of the nation.

As we have seen our nation’s economy decline, our transportation system has suffered from a lack of funding to support the maintenance of aging infrastructure, development of new technology, and necessary projects to accommodate growth and increased usage. It is critical that business and government leaders come together to collaborate on how to best move forward in order to provide our nation with state-of-the-art, safe, and reliable transportation modes. This unique collaboration will include leaders from federal, state, and local governments, engineers, business leaders, representative associations and top transportation research institutions. Together, we can begin to come up with the solutions to our transportation challenges! "
