STRIDE Center Co-Sponsors the 2016 UTC Conference for the Southeastern Region

The STRIDE Center once again co-sponsored the UTC Conference for the Southeastern Region, which was hosted this year by the University of Tennessee located right in the heart of downtown Knoxville. This year, the conference included a 3-Minute Thesis presentation in which two students from UF participated. Michael Armstrong, a recent graduate of the transportation program at UF, who is now working at HDR in North Carolina, presented on “A Methodology for Evaluating Interactions between Surface Streets and Freeway Diverge Segments for Application in the Highway Capacity Manual” and Deja Jackson, presented her current doctoral work on “The Influence of Urban Form on Sustainable Transportation Practices”. Successfully in its fourth year, the conference brings together students, faculty, and transportation practitioners from the public and private sectors to showcase the latest UTC research and enhances and promote future collaboration amongst the UTC community. Below are some images from the event.
