On September 17th, NTC@Maryland offered a training workshop on the estimation of broader economic benefits of multimodal transportation projects at the UMD College Park campus. This workshop is part of a research project, jointly funded by the Maryland State Highway Administration and NTC@Maryland and led by project co-PIs Professors Paul Schonfeld and Lei Zhang. The training session, taught by the project co-PIs and Eirini Kastrouni and Elham Shayanfar from UMD, and Richard Margiotta from Cambridge Systematics, was attended by professionals from Maryland State Highway Administration, Baltimore Metropolitan Council, Cambridge Systematics, UMD Center for Advanced Transportation Technology, and faculty and students from University of Maryland. The purpose of this training session was to transfer a practical tool for qualifying and evaluating the broader economic benefits to intended users in Maryland. The toolbox is based on the integration of the Maryland Statewide Transportation Model and the SHRP2 C11 products customized for Maryland. The training session has been video recorded and those who are interested can access the training session remotely at the following link:
