Short Courses- $60.00 per person which includes both short courses and lunch

I Hotel and Conference Center, Lincoln Room

9:00 am- 12:00 pm- Design Build Experiences for Transportation Infrastructure (3PDH's)

This year is going to bring tremendous change in Illinois – perhaps for the first time in more than a decade we will have serious and substantial investments made in infrastructure.  In addition, in order to help agencies implement projects faster and more efficiently, Design-Build is a tool that has a real possibility of become an option for agencies like IDOT and the Tollway.  Illinois is one of only four states that does not have the legal authority to do D-B at the State DOT level.  This Short Course will address questions on potential changes to the law and what it means to stakeholders: how do industry and state agencies prepare, what are important factors to keep in mind, and how do agencies use this new tool most effectively?

12:00 pm- 1:00 pm- Lunch

1:00 pm- 4:00 pm- Local Agency Issues (3 PDH's)

A short course for highway engineers with updates on current laws, policies, and regulations encountered on roadway design projects.  The topics to be covered include information requests, ROW and easements, drainage policy, ADA compliance, and how projects are funded through MFT.
