The Changing Face of Transportation


The 2012 SDITE / GLDITE Joint Annual Meeting was aTired great success and we hope you were part of it.  Thanks to everyone who participated in some manner whether it was part of the Local Arrangments Committee, volunteer, or as an attendee.  As with two weeks ago, this newsletter is a little light as most of our "staff" are still recovering from long hours during the meeting.

In the mean time, enjoy some photos:

Build a Bridge Over The Weekend

Instead they replaced the bridge in one weekend using accelerated bridge construction. To find out more about this project and process click here.

The Affect of Having To Pee
Provided by: Billy Garrison (GRW)



We've all been there. Having to use the bathroom while stuck in traffic can be miserable. Does it affect your driving skills? A recent study hypothesizes that the affect of having to pee is equal to the affect of being drunk. To read more click here.
