2014 Our Town Forum: Funding our Transportation System

Join WILMAPCO at the Embassy Suite Hotel (654 College Ave.) in Newark, DE on Wednesday, September 3 from 4-7 p.m., for their biannual Our Town Forum. This year’s Our Town will focus on Transportation Funding and addressing the shortfalls that exist in our regional and nation.

Due to funding shortfalls in recent years, many projects have been delayed, placed on hold, or have lost funding altogether. Rising material and labor costs, increased demand for new infrastructure, Transportation Trust Fund not keeping pace with infrastructure needs, and unsustainable growth in para-transit have all contributed to the instability of transportation funding in our region.

But what can be done about it? During Our Town you’ll hear from local and national experts, and elected representatives, what can be done to adequately fund our transportation system now and in the future. [Visit the event webpage for full details and pre-registration ...]
