What is the EDC-EXCHANGE?
The EDC-Exchange is a regularly scheduled series of meetings which combine web-based presentation with in-person group participation. EDC Exchanges describe effective project development and delivery practices, tools and "market ready" technologies that local and tribal transportation agencies can readily implement into their programs. FHWA national subject matter experts, in conjunction with FHWA and State DOT field office experts, provide information and materials, and facilitate discussions designed specifically for the local/tribal transportation managers.
What is the EDC-EXCHANGE format?
The proposed format divides the Exchange into three segments. Each segment will include approximately 20 minutes of presentation by the national Subject Matter Experts (SME). This will be followed by a 20 minute facilitated local discussion in each seminar room. These discussions will allow the FHWA, State DOT, Local Agency and Tribal participants to talk the topic and its application in their state. After the local discussion, all participants will reconvene for a national Q and A period with the national SME.
Why should I participate in the EDC-EXCHANGE? How do I participate?
Participating in the EDC-EXCHANGE gives you the opportunity to convene with your peers to discuss challenges and successes with state and federal leaders. If you are interested in attending, please contact your local FHWA Division Office and ask to speak with the EDC Coordinator. https://fhwaapps.fhwa.dot.gov/foisp/keyFieldFederalAidDivisions.do. Each state will select the EDC Exchange location(s) that best meet the needs within their state.
What are the EDC-EXCHANGE topics for 2013?
December 4, 2013; 2:00-4:00 Eastern – Intersection and Interchange Geometrics
