Describing the Vision for the Next Era of Transportation

December 7, 2022 from 9:00 am to 9:30 am

Session Description

Demographic, economic, development, environmental, technological, and other trends are changing the demand for moving people and freight; the mobility options available to serve our customers; and the capacity of state DOTs to carry out our mission. Through NCHRP 20-24(138), AASHTO conducted research and developed consensus among state DOT leaders around a national transportation vision. This session will describe the trends, uncertainties, and disruptions shaping the future of transportation in the United States and the vision developed and recently adopted by the AASHTO Board of Directors to guide state DOTs during the next decade, including initial concepts for “moonshots” we could achieve during this time.
