ITE Joint Western District Sections
Fall Webinar Series – What’s New in the West
Excellence in Transportation Western District Projects

This past year several projects were submitted for their excellence in transportation in the Western District’s Transportation Project of the Year nominations.   The Western District fall webinar series allows us to share these real-life case studies of what agencies are doing on the ground to advance the transportation practice.  Join us on October 25th and November 2nd over lunchtime (noon to 1:00 PM Pacific) to learn more about these award-winning projects and help us celebrate their accomplishments.

Registration for these virtual webinar sessions is open to all ITE members for free (small registration fee for non-ITE members).
