The 2022 TAPA Fall Conference will be held in Knoxville from October 26th through the 28th. Located along the scenic Tennessee River, the city has reinvented itself as a mecca for outdoor recreation in recent years. The vast Urban Wilderness, which consists of over fifty miles of biking and hiking trails within minutes of downtown, and the numerous kayak and paddleboard access points are examples of how the City has turned perceived barriers into invaluable resources.
Much like the 2016 conference in Knoxville, this year's conference will be a joint effort between TAPA and the Tennessee Section of the Institute of Transportation Engineers Chapter (TSITE). The theme will be Inclusive Infrastructure for Today and Tomorrow. This theme allows for a broad array of topics relevant to communities across the state, such as multi-modal transportation options, the effects of urban renewal, affordable housing, curbside management, and temporary street closures for events or tactical urbanism projects, just to name a few. As always, required CM credits for Law and Ethics will be available, as well as the new required Sustainability and Resilience and Equity.
