Technical Projects


Welcome to the Technical Projects Committee!

And like any committee, there will be numerous meetings, many debates, brainstorming of great ideas and ultimately, the committee chairs will ignore any and all input from everyone and select the projects they like most! Or at least, what our President will allow the committee to work on. Of course, we are only kidding!

This committee is dynamic, fun, and interesting committee for everyone to participate in. This committee attempts to support initiatives that will benefit the transportation planning and engineering community at large, and assist in addressing engineering, planning, and policy development within the New York/New Jersey Metro Area.

The goals of the Technical Committee shall be to improve the visibility of technical issues and projects in the Metropolitan New York area in light of national technical issues and projects.
