Fall Seminar Update:

Unfortunately, due to a speaker scheduling conflict, the fall seminar is cancelled.  Our sincere apologies.   Thank you for your understanding in this matter.Mark you calendars for the upcoming spring seminar on February 26, 2014.

This past summer, students from the University of Dayton traveled to various locations to put there engineering skills to good use. They traveled to Africa, Guatemala and Cameron to tackle real engineering problems. Some of the projects they worked on while they were in the foreign countries were water delivery systems, water quality and educating the local residents about the importance maintaining the newly installed water systems. The students worked alongside with the local residents to implement the projects.

(WASHINGTON)—The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) is once again bringing a first-class, virtual education experience to the desktops of hundreds of city and county government officials charged with helping build, manage and maintain the millions of miles of roads, bridges and transit systems that make up the U.S. transportation network. The free, online learning event, known as LōTrans™, the Local Transportation Management & Safety Virtual Conference, will take place December 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., EST, on your nearest desktop or laptop computer. Sessions on asset management, state and local trends in transportation funding, best practices in maintaining unpaved roads, snow removal, flagging on low volume roads, temporary traffic control measures on gravel roads, and encore presentations on road work zone safety issues are on the agenda. Now in its third year, LoTrans™ was organized with the leadership, counsel and support of ARTBA’s Transportation Officials Division (TOD), which includes city, county, state and federal officials from across the nation. It is being supported by the National Association of County Engineers, the National Local Technical Assistance Program Association, and the National Work Zone Safety Information Clearinghouse. Check out the full program schedule and list of speakers. Register: www.lotransvirtualconference.org. Established in 1902, the Washington, D.C.-based ARTBA is the “consensus voice” of the U.S. transportation design and construction industry.

My name is Ivan Rodriguez Del Rio and I am from San Juan, Puerto Rico. I am a senior, studying Civil Engineering at the University of Dayton. This summer I will be working on a potential water system for the Guatemalan community of Cortijo through the ETHOS program. I will be working alongside Kyle Slone, Chris Baxter, Colleen Kresse, and members from Cortijo. Our team’s first objective is to speak with the leaders of Cortijo regarding their goals concerning the water distribution system. Due to Cortijo’s increasing population, a more reliable water source and an efficient water distribution system is crucial. Constant communication with the community members will be necessary in order to find possible routes to surrounding natural water sources. If we can create an accurate elevation analysis of the Cortijos’s terrain we should be able to design and build a new water distribution system. (write-up provided 5/2014)

Presentations will be given by all the ETHOS grant recipients in November. 

Thursday, October 23, 2014
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

The Dayton Region is crisscrossed by the nation’s largest network of paved, off-street trails. We will discuss how this network serves as the spines of a regional non-motorized transportation network, through connections to local routes and complete streets. We’ll learn what every community can do to build and enhance this tremendous asset.
