Holcomb joins panel discussion for Purdue Road School
Gov. Eric J. Holcomb was a featured guest at the 109th Purdue Road School Transportation Conference and Expo on March 14-15 at Purdue.
Executive Vice President for Research Karen Plaut welcomed participants during the opening session in Stewart Center’s Loeb Playhouse. Holcomb was then joined by Michael Smith, Indiana Department of Transportation commissioner, and Chris Jensen, mayor of the city of Noblesville, in a fireside chat moderated by Richard Hedgecock, president of Indiana Constructors, Inc. The panel members shared their perspectives on Indiana transportation infrastructure and the impact those investments have on economic development in the state.
This year’s program offered more than 190 technical sessions designed for federal, state and local agencies, industry, consulting and academic colleagues. The sessions were organized into 19 tracks and were presented in Stewart Center and several adjacent classroom buildings.
