Mobility Disruption Ahead: Technology is the New Asphalt

Advanced mobility technology is disrupting the transportation industry and transforming how we will move people, goods and services in the future. Technology is the new asphalt, and we need an infrastructure strategy that rewards innovation. We must plan, test and implement smart infrastructure and smart community solutions to anticipate and solve real-world problems, efficiently plan and deploy resources, and improve economic development.
