State departments of transportation (DOTs) have adapted their organizations, institutional arrangements, and management practices to improve transportation system performance and resilience capacity by adopting new technologies.

Presenters will explore the institutional and management changes credited for the success.

The presenters will share lessons learned to inform other agencies about the process.
