Transportation Matters:
Moving Washington Forward

Washington state’s economy, its people and their quality of life depend on a multimodal, integrated transportation system that works for all of its users, regardless of age, ability or economic status. Secretary of Transportation Roger Millar will discuss the Washington State Department of Transportation’s role as stewards of the state’s $200 billion investment in transportation and how the agency is managing today’s challenges – congestion, system preservation, land use, workforce and more. Millar also takes a look ahead to future transportation trends including system resilience, alternative energy, new and emerging technology, as well as funding and investment priorities.
