May 12-16 is National Transportation Week, and we’re going to mark the occasion in a big way in the Fast Lane. With transportation news on the front pages and transportation policy debates headlining the presidential election for the first time in recent memory, there’s certainly plenty to talk about. We all know safe and efficient transportation is a key component of our economy, but it seems more people than ever are questioning the assumptions and underlying structure of how we fund, build, and maintain our infrastructure network.
This is a good thing! And I hope the Fast Lane will continue to be a place where questions are asked and ideas are debated.
To celebrate National Transportation Week, key policy makers and Administrators from our various agencies will blog about the future of their modes, and about some of the exciting things they have planned for the remainder of the year. We’ll also hear from guest bloggers.
And as always, we want to hear from you. I’m glad the Fast Lane is inspiring debate, and I hope the diversity of topics this week will lead to an even more constructive conversation.
Happy National Transportation Week!
