Transportation Panel

Washington & Idaho Transportation Panel

Spokane Convention Center: 334 W. Spokane Falls Blvd.

We would like to thank everyone who attended the Transportation Panel event. We sincerely hope that you found it valuable.

Please join us for this event, as MAS hosts a Washington/Idaho Transportation Panel!  With the recent approvals of the Washington State Transportation Funding Package and the Idaho State Gas Tax, our four panelists will discuss:

  • What these funding packages mean for their agencies. 
  • What projects are happening in the next 1-5 years.
  • How they select consultants for these projects.
  • Their thoughts on Design/Build for their upcoming projects.
