AASHTO Data Committee Creates New Monthly Newslettereditor@aashto.org January 15, 2021 0 COMMENTS
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Committee on Data Management & Analytics recently published the first in a new series of monthly newsletters to highlight how investing in data management research provides more “tools in the toolbox” to help improve transportation system management.
“Without investing our time and resources into research, we won’t have as many ‘tools in the toolbox’ to deal with the next crisis,” explained April Blackburn, chief of transportation technology for the Florida Department of Transportation and the CDMA’s vice-chair, in the committee’s first newsletter.
“Because we researched how to be more mobile-enabled, we were able to react well [to the COVID-19 pandemic] and have taken each of our agencies to new heights with new capabilities to not only survive, but to thrive,” she said.
