Meet Us in Portland for ITE 2023

Toole Design will have a strong presence at the 2023 Joint ITE International Annual Meeting and Exhibition in Portland, OR, on August 13–16. The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) conference brings together ITE members from a variety of disciplines and locations around the world to share innovative tools, technologies, and best practices. The goal, according to this year’s theme, is “connecting people and communities,” and Toole Design staff are excited to share how we’re doing just that.

ITE has assembled a packed and informative program — it’s not too late to register — and Portland is the perfect backdrop to explore solutions to many of today’s transportation issues. We encourage you to connect with Toole Design staff at the sessions below, starting with a plenary presentation from our President Jennifer Toole on creating people-oriented communities. Our contributions include the latest thinking on integrating accessibility into bicycle facility design as well as showcasing Vision Zero success stories. We conclude on Wednesday with an important contribution to climate solutions: a presentation on trails as resilient infrastructure featuring a forthcoming FHWA publication on the topic.

We look forward to sharing and learning with you!
