HNTB’s Peter Gertler, Senior Vice President, will moderate a panel on “Connecting Cascadia in a Multimodal Future.” Also participating is Lynn Peterson, Council President, Oregon Metro; Amy Scarton, Deputy Secretary, Washington State Department of Transportation; Kevin Volk, Assistant Deputy Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, Government of British Columbia; and Chase Kitchen, Government Affairs Manager, Amtrak

Panel description: Population growth in the Cascadia Region (which includes Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland) is expected to surge 30 percent by 2050, and the current influx of residents is already straining the existing transportation systems. However, this expected boom also sets the stage for a momentous opportunity to transform how people live and move throughout the region. By investing in new multimodal regional transportation options like high-speed rail and eVTOL, how can Cascadia’s three major urban areas be connected into an innovation corridor? Learn how leaders on both sides of the border are working together to make this vision a reality, and the challenges facing this kind of coordinated effort.
