    Sponsors of transformational capital projects will describe how their projects were envisioned, designed, funded, built, and poised to provide public benefits.

    Transit capital projects address community and regional needs in a variety of ways.   Over the past year, transit agencies across the country have opened new lines, extended service to new parts of their regions, and upgraded operational and environmental performance through improvements such as electrification and double tracking.  Sponsors of transformational capital projects will describe how their projects were envisioned, designed, funded, built, and poised to provide public benefits.  Each project is a reflection of ways the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is being utilized to make big things happen.

    In this session, Big Dig podcast producer Ian Coss will speak about the public narrative associated with big infrastructure projects, the engineering and community challenges that inevitably arise and need to be overcome, and the ultimate judgement that comes from the longer-term outcomes and benefits.

    There is a story that accompanies every infrastructure project.   While every project stage requires attention to budgets, schedules and funding, ultimately projects are a story about how they how they enhance the quality of life in a community, how they enable economic growth, and how they provide access to jobs and opportunity.

    A new and highly acclaimed podcast by Boston’s GBH public radio station has taken a look at what was at one time the nation’s largest and most scrutinized megaproject – Boston’s Big Dig – to reflect on its story and impact twenty years following its opening.   That story today is about a project that delivered on its promise to transform the city and improve its transit and highway operations.

    In this session, Big Dig podcast producer Ian Coss will speak about the public narrative associated with big infrastructure projects, the engineering and community challenges that inevitably arise and need to be overcome, and the ultimate judgement that comes from the longer-term outcomes and benefits.  Following the presentation, a panel of practitioners will share their experiences and perspectives in a facilitated conversation.

    Compared with 34 years ago, persons with disabilities have far higher expectations of themselves, and society views disability far more inclusively today than in 1990. Panelists will take a fresh look at accessible transit in the context of mature fixed-route systems and a more modern view of accessibility.

    Since its enactment in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act has increased access and opportunity for persons with disabilities across community life.  ADA Paratransit was created as a “safety net” for people with disabilities who couldn’t use fixed-route due to disability.   This was at a time when fixed-route service was far less accessible than it is today.   Even with the huge progress in the accessibility of bus and rail systems, not everyone with a disability can use ADA accessible fixed-route services.  Compared with 34 years ago, persons with disabilities have far higher expectations of themselves, and society views disability far more inclusively today than in 1990.   Panelists will take a fresh look at accessible transit in the context of mature fixed-route systems and a more modern view of accessibility.
