On March 30th IBTTA (International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association) held their Washington Briefing during which leaders in the transportation policy debate discussed key policy issues. The event brought together the “who’s who” in transportation and provided a forum to address critical issues with Congress and federal agencies. It also included a Hill visit and content including: Where Tolling Fits in Surface Transportation Policy & Funding; Transportation Authorization in Congress; What Customers, Critics and the Media Think About Tolling and Why; and State and Local Innovations in Surface Transportation Funding.  Center Director Jonathan Gifford was invited to speak and his presentation, “Research Underpinnings of Tolling,” educated participants about road pricing, project selection, and the shift in transportation infrastructure.  Please use the following link to view the presentation slides: Gifford – IBTTA – 2015-03-30 final.
