Expert Working Group

The Expert Working Group (EWG) was established to provide input on issues such as control points between significant places within the overall corridor and other issues as needed. Members of the EWG provided the Cambridge Systematics' study team with facts, opinions and references related to the study. This input was incorporated into to the interim and final reports submitted to FHWA.

A series of four (4) meetings of the EWG occurred through the completion of the corridor study. Meetings of the EWG were held in person, with teleconference or videoconference capabilities for those who could not attend in person. Regulations prohibit the non-federal participants from exceeding nine members.
