The William O. Lipinski Symposium
on Transportation Policy

U.S. Representative James Oberstar speaks at the ITI sponsored William O. Lipinski Symposium on Transportation Policy in 2007

The William O. Lipinski Symposium on Transportation Policy is a working conference that explores transportation and infrastructure problems facing the nation today and discusses new ways to plan, manage, and finance solutions for the 21st Century.

The symposium acts as a forum to connect decision-makers with transportation experts from all over the country and to build a consensus on policies for state and federal action now and in the future. The conference is sponsored by Northwestern University and the Infrastructure Technology Institute, and is held annually.

The Symposium is named after William Oliver Lipinski, a former Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives who served on the Transportation Committee.
