CDTC's planning efforts draw on a wealth of information, from planning studies to white papers to peer reviewed research journals. As a result, we have extensive resources regarding transportation, public policy, land use, etc. that can be drawn upon by the public at large. We encourage those in our region to browse these resources and become better acquainted with the work we perform, the subjects that we deal with and the regulations related to transportation planning and infrastructure. Below are videos and other resources that highlight topics of interest to CDTC and local governments in the region.

Infrastructure Investment

Investing in Infrastructure: Transportation 101 with AASHTO's Joung Lee
