Purdue Road School - 108 Years of Innovative Research

Event Date: March 15 & 16, 2022


Tuesday's Opening Session Speakers with Road School Co-Chairs: Mung Chiang, John Haddock, Lloyd Winnecke, Fred Cartwright, Michael Smith, Richard Hedgecock, and Darcy Bullock

The 108th Purdue Road School Transportation Conference and Expo returned to an in-person format in 2022.  Purdue University Executive Vice President Mung Chiang welcomed attendees at the Opening Session and remarked how good it was to conduct an event on campus with over 2,700 transportation professionals representing a wide range of agencies, industry, and academia.

The Opening Session featured remarks from Michael Smith, Commissioner for Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT). A Fireside Chat with Smith and Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, Fred Cartwright, CEO/President of Conexus, and Richard Hedgecock, President of Indiana Constructors, Inc., addressed transportation initiatives and their impact on state and local economic development. 

The Road School Exhibit Hall on March 15 and 16 provided attendees with opportunities to network and collaborate with 52 exhibitor booths. The Student Poster Session allowed students to share their research and engage with transportation colleagues from across the state.

This year's event included 173 hours of technical sessions involving more than 325 speakers and moderators. Road School presentations are archived in the Purdue Libraries' online repository and are available for viewing at http://docs.lib.purdue.edu/roadschool/. The Purdue Road School archives provides a rich history and has nearly 840,000 downloads from proceedings dating back to 1924.
