The Golden State Gateway Coalition is a proud supporter of the summit, and the Coalition’s  Executive Director Victor Lindenheim is honored to be participating as a speaker in this year’s event.

Lindenheim is a featured speaker in the breakout session, “Mind the Gap: What Gap Closures Mean for the Effectiveness of Southern California’s Goods Movement System.”

Mobility 21 outlines the session as follows:

While the SCAG region can still lay claim to having the most efficient freight transportation system in the country, much more needs to be done.  If viewed as a system, the region’s extensive freight network still has a number of “gap” projects which need to be completed in order to keep it running efficiently.

The Devore Interchange in San Bernardino County, the High Desert Corridor connecting Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties, the truck lanes along the I-5 in northern Los Angeles County, and the new border crossing in San Diego represent individual projects which, in the future, will relieve congestion, improve mobility and keep Southern California competitive as “America’s Gateway.”  Attend this session to hear the latest on these gap closure projects and how they are part of a Southern California region wide system of projects.

The session will be moderated by Hasan Ikhrata, Executive Director of the Southern California Association of Governments. 

Additional speakers include: Ty Schuiling, Director of Planning, San Bernardino Associated Governments; Doug Failing, Executive Director of Highway Project Delivery, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority;  and, Tina Casgar, Goods Movement Director, San Diego Association of Governments.
