From the Ground Up

OCTOBER 8-10, 2019

Join us at INTERSECT19 as we build transportation’s foundation “From The Ground Up.”

About the Conference

Your city, project, or product is only as good as the foundation it’s built on. INTERSECT is the foundation for training ITS professionals for the connected future of a technology-driven transportation industry. Technicians earn TARP points through GRIDSMART specific product sessions designed to educate the next generation of ITS professionals. Industry leaders share insight on developing the framework for successfully deploying intelligent technology as solutions in your community.

“I love civil engineers, I do… But the answer was always concrete and re-bar, and the stuff that goes in the traffic control box is an after thought… No, it’s all about data, it’s about innovation… We should be doing dynamic signal control everywhere.”
