Edwards Lecture Series

Innovation in Delivery of Transportation Infrastructure

Thursday, May 11, 2017 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Lecturer: Dr. C. Michael Walton, professor of Civil Engineering and Ernest H. Cockrell Centennial Chair in Engineering at The University of Texas Austin.

Abstract: As a component of governmental reform, the delivery of transportation programs and services is undergoing dramatic change worldwide.  There are new models which attempt to separate the linkage of transportation policy and management from the service delivery functions.  This presentation will concentrate on the issues of transport policy and the emerging models for delivering programs and services such as outsourcing/concessions, privatization, state owned enterprises, and financing of transport systems.  Given the magnitude of the overall investment in highways, this presentation will concentrate on highway transportation.
