    CEO Roundtable: What’s Ahead for Transportation
    in Southern California

    Join Mobility 21 Board Members and Chief Executives of Southern
    California’s transportation commissions for a candid look at
    upcoming significant capital programs in Imperial, Los Angeles,
    Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura
    counties. Panelists will explore how our region works together to
    secure funding for the impressive array of transportation services
    and projects in our region. This discussion will also include the
    stark reality of achieving the promises made to voters in the face
    of declining sales tax revenues, lack of political will to increase the
    fuel tax or change how we fund our highways and transit systems.

  4. Time to Work Together: The Implementation of Goods Movement Infrastructure Projects and the Public Health Community

    Sponsored by URS Corporation
    Public health impacts are an issue of growing concern in
    connection with infrastructure projects, including those that serve
    the movement of goods such as the Long Beach Freeway (I-710).
    This vital transportation artery links the Ports of Long Beach and
    Los Angeles to major Southern California distribution centers and
    intermodal rail facilities. Due to population growth, increased
    cargo and traffic volumes, coupled with an aging infrastructure,
    the I-710 experiences serious congestion and safety issues. An
    environmental impact study is underway to analyze the range
    of possible improvement alternatives for the corridor. The panel
    will provide an opportunity for an exchange between the project
    sponsor and community/health representatives to address
    issues including: 1) What are and should be the expectations of
    each stakeholder? 2) Are they mutually exclusive? 3) How have
    expectations been managed? and 4) What have been the success
    and horror stories so far?

    Technology and Transportation: How New Technologies are Decreasing Costs, Increasing Transportation Facility Life Cycles and Saving Taxpayers Money

    Sponsored by Hatch Mott MacDonald
    Historical methods of constructing, managing and
    maintaining transportation infrastructure — many of which remain
    in use today — are not withstanding the test of time. The result:
    a staggering and seemingly ever-growing financial burden on
    taxpayers as these structures age and require expensive repairs or
    replacement. Come learn how commercially-available technologies
    are being employed to solve the crisis. Experts from the public,
    private and academic sectors will discuss the operational and
    financial challenges as well as opportunities to utilize new
    construction materials and IT-driven solutions that can reduce
    costs and substantially extend infrastructure service life.
