Stephen Buckley, P.E., AICP, Vice President Planning and Advisory Services at Kimley-Horn, joins theITE Talks Transportationpodcast to discus the collaboration between transportation planning professionals and engineers. Having began his career as an engineer, and now working as a planner, Steve shares some of the key milestones along the path of his career, discusses real-life examples of successful collaboration between the two groups of professionals, and offers up guidance for how planners and engineers can support each other in their projects while bringing their own valid insights and valuable perspectives. Steve recently took part in the keynote conversation at ITE’s Virtual Spring Conference in March.
With spring here outdoor activities are on the increase. On any sunny weekend day you’ll find the walking path through Nomahegan Park in Cranford, New Jersey crowded with folks getting exercise and enjoying the outdoors. Did you know that if you continued north on the pathway, you’d eventually end up at the Canadian border and if you continued south your final destination would be Key West? The East Coast Greenway connects urban areas along the Atlantic coast. Dennis Markatos-Soriano is the executive director of the East Coast Greenway Alliance and he’s my guest on this week’s Cranford Radio podcast.
In 2012, voters in three Georgia regions approved a one percent sales tax to fund local transportation projects. In 2023 the Georgia Transportation Investment Act is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
