This panel seeks to find common ground in the arena of project delivery between funding partners and public employees. To position itself for future prosperity, California must embrace innovative means to deliver and maintain significant transportation improvements. Prior to the worldwide economic collapse that defined the end of the first decade of the 21st Century, California’s vibrant economy focused on successful congestion mitigation along it’s highway and rail corridors to service commuter and goods movement demands. This is expected to continue to play a key role in our recovery. Traditional delivery methods require substantial time investment before the benefit of projects is realized. Key stakeholders including funding partners, consultants, public employee unions and contractors must find new ways to collaborate in order to dramatically reduce project delivery timelines while limiting capital expenditures.
