[Virtual] - Region on the Rise: Improving Infrastructure in a Recovering Economy


Tuesday, July 21, 2020
1:30 PM – 2:30 PM

The third in a series of virtual gatherings, hear directly from leadership at the Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA) and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) as they discuss resuming construction on major projects and improving infrastructure in a recovering economy. Attendees will learn more about the plans to improve access and infrastructure to our ports and railways in addition to insight into future projects and transportation modernization.

About Region on the Rise

Before the COVID-19 crisis, Greater Philadelphia saw an increasing demand in modern mobility as a central hub for transportation. Home to the nation’s 3rd busiest Amtrak station, an international airport which exceeded 32 million passengers last year, and roadways and bridges that typically see more than 37.4 million vehicles a year, the once bustling sectors of the transportation industry have come to a halt due to the stay-at-home orders. As the economy begins to reopen under strict guidelines, the transportation industry must adapt to ensure the safe passage of travelers.

As a virtual series, Region on the Rise brings together top officials from our region’s transportation systems and influential lawmakers for an insightful discussion about the impact of COVID-19 and the future of the transportation industry.
