Spring Meeting Announced!


Spring time in Kentucky

Hopefully spring weather is just around the corner, and with that in mind the KYSITE board has been working hard to put together the Spring meeting to kick off the year.  We will be returning to UK’s campus in the Civil Engineering Raymond Building (some of us have fond and not so fond memories of time spent here).   The meeting is scheduled for March 25th, 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM.

 

Many of you remember the entertaining match between our Traffic Bowl students and UK professors last year.  Not to be outdone, the practioners want in on the battle, so this year we will have 3 teams competing for bragging rights. Stay tuned for more infomation on the speakers and presentations topics.  A map of campus can be foundhere with parking and building location information.  Special thanks to Director Eric Green for coordinating.

Message from KYSITE !

Hello KYSITE!

We like to have fun sometimes around here (probably a bit too much sometimes), but our goal is to provide you with information about the transportation engineering / planning world while keeping you mildly amused.

This week in the intro, we’d like to briefly focus on the decline of highway related deaths within the Commonwealth.  In fact, 2013 marked the lowest number of fatalities since 1949.  We would like to thank everyone who works hard every day with safety in mind that is responsible for this downward trend.

That being said, we all know that 635 fatalities are still too many.  Therefore, let’s join in the initiative and aim Toward Zero Deaths.

Let us know if you need anything from KYSITE!

SDITE Traffic Bowl Update

The University of Kentucky Traffic Bowl Team has just completed its competition of the 2013 William H Temple Scholarship Challenge. The goods news is that our team scored a record number of points. The bad news is that the points were negative. We are proud of our team’s aggressive approach. We would like to thank them for their time and efforts to prepare for this exciting competition.
