106th Purdue Road School - Transportation Conference & Expo March 9-12, 2020
Welcome to Purdue Road School
      Transportation Conference and Expo
The 106th Purdue Road School is your once-a-year opportunity to hear
about the latest innovations in transportation and interact with thousands
of transportation industry professionals. No matter what your role, no mat-
ter where you work, there is something at Road School for you.

Road School provides opportunities to obtain Professional Development
Hours (PDHs) toward licensing requirements, with PHD credit available for
175 sessions in the 2020 technical program. We continue to strengthen our
partnership with the Work Truck Show and conducted several sessions on
Road School Day in Indianapolis on March 5.

The impact of the technical program lasts well beyond the conference.
Since 2011 we have archived Road School presentations and proceedings
dating back to 1924 in the Purdue Libraries’ online repository. To date, these
proceedings and presentations have been downloaded more than 502,000
times. This impact would not be possible without the strong participation
of colleagues and stakeholders who have shaped the program, which this
year includes more than 190 presentations involving nearly 350 speakers
and moderators.

STEW 311         electronic consultant invoicing application with
                 nine pilot firms. In March of 2018, the application
PDH: 1           was rolled out for use with most new consultant
                 contracts. Approximately 2,500 invoices were
                 processed through eInvoice in FY 2019, and
                 INDOT is working on an enhancement retrofit
                 for implementation on earlier contracts. In this
                 session INDOT representatives will review the
                 purpose and features of the application as well
                 as planned future enhancements.

                 Urban vs. Rural Implications of User Fees—
                 Motor fuel taxes are an unsustainable revenue
                 source due to the rising fuel efficiency of
                 vehicles and the growth in hybrid and electric
                 vehicles. Two user fee alternatives are tolls and
                 mileage-based taxes, yet there are many mis-
                 conceptions about the disproportionate impacts
                 they would have on rural vs. urban drivers. This
                 presentation will explore user fees from both
                 drivers’ perspectives, including policy consider-
                 ations that can be applied based on geography.
