This video provides special coverage of the 2017 Transportation Research Board (TRB) 96th Annual Meeting held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, in Washington, D.C. January 8–12. In this video, TRB Executive Director Neil Pedersen discusses his agency’s outreach to the Trump administration and he also explains the meeting’s global appeal attracting this year, an estimated 13,000 transportation professionals from 70 countries. The leaders of more than 20 state departments of transportation also took part—leading several of the more than 5,000 presentations and 800 sessions and workshops that took place at this year’s meeting. The video also includes an excerpt from USDOT Secretary Anthony Foxx’s final speech at TRB. Foxx outlined one of the biggest challenges facing transportation professionals today.
