Message from the Conference Scientific & Technical Committee Chairs

Technology and innovations are evolving at a pace never seen before in the history of the road and transport sector. From innovations in materials, such as self-healing concrete and rubberized asphalt, to advances in construction equipment automation, and of course, the dawn of the connected and automated vehicle, we are on a verge of a new era. With such remarkable developments, we found it very important to organize a global event that brought together the most innovative researchers with the top practitioners and users of innovation and technology. As such it is our pleasure invite innovators, researchers and practitioners to submit abstracts in the following topics and help us build tomorrow’s transport infrastructure today.

Dr. Kamil Kaloush, Professor, Arizona State University Dr. Moses Karakouzian, Professor, University of Nevada, Las Vegas

CENTENNIAL BOWL

The $73 million project — located where U.S. Highway 95 meets the 215 Beltway in northwest Las Vegas — entails building the state’s second longest bridge, at 75 feet tall by 39 feet wide, with a concrete box girder structure measuring 2,635 feet long. The project calls for removing part of the Oso Blanca Road ramp and the old north-to-west loop, making room for three new freeway flyover ramp connections, including: eastbound 215 Beltway to U.S. 95 southbound, U.S. 95 southbound to 215 Beltway eastbound, and U.S. 95 southbound to 215 Beltway westbound. The project is scheduled to finish in the spring of 2021, with the final phase of the Centennial Bowl project, 3-D, being advertised six months prior to Phase ll’s completion, to ensure a seamless construction timetable. The first phase of the Centennial Bowl project completed in summer 2017. [blank h=”30″] [/blank] [blank h=”30″] [/blank] [blank h=”30″] [/blank] [text_divider type=”single”]

Freeway and Arterial System of Transportation (FAST)

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC)’s traffic management center is one of the first truly integrated Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in the country. The advanced intelligent traffic management center, also known as the Freeway and Arterial System of Transportation (FAST), operates across all of Southern Nevada’s jurisdictions and in partnership with the Nevada Department of Transportation and the Nevada Highway Patrol. FAST is responsible for the coordination and communication to traffic signals throughout Southern Nevada and the operation and maintenance of numerous technologies to monitor and help control traffic flow along area freeways.
