The Annual William O. Lipinski Symposium on Transportation Policy & Strategy

The William O. Lipinski Symposium on Transportation Policy & Strategy is a working conference that explores transportation and infrastructure problems facing the nation today and discusses new ways to plan, manage, and finance solutions for the 21st Century.  

The Symposium acts as a forum to connect decision-makers with transportation experts from all over the country and to build a consensus on policies for state and federal action now and in the future. 

The Symposium is named after William Oliver Lipinski, a former Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives who served on the Transportation Committee.
