"Jim Tymon, the new executive director of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, said in a conference call with reporters on Jan. 8 that improvements in technology is one of the driving factors behind a shift in perception regarding state departments of transportation from "highway departments" to "multimodal entities" that focus on the "mobility" needs of people and goods.⠀
"We are seeing new disruptive technologies being deployed at breakneck speed – from driverless vehicles to exciting new construction techniques and materials – and as transportation preferences change, state DOTs need the resources to continue to revolutionize how they build, operate and maintain the nation's surface transportation network," Tymon said."

🚗 G is for Things that Go 🚲 This week, we have a transportation unit. Breathe new life into old toys by adding a small component. My students seem to love cars but they LOVED adding the stop light into their play! Super simple— but provides TONS of fun (and understanding the meanings of the colors on the stoplight). These stoplights are super versatile and have tons of possibilities for activities.

A Long Island City intersection next to a busy school will finally be safer to cross.
Last Thursday, the Department of Transportation (DOT) joined Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer and local parents to celebrate a new all-way stop sign at 5th Street and 46th Avenue.
The traffic-calming measure comes after seven years of advocacy from Van Bramer and the PS/IS 78 community, including rallies, letters, and press conferences.
“When stop signs are here, they make everyone, including and especially children, much safer,” Van Bramer said. “It’s a great victory.”
