The Western District announced a new Outstanding Technical Paper Award that will be awarded starting this year. They previously had a paper award (called the Wayne T. & Patricia VanWagoner Award) for which only papers published in the ITE Journal were eligible. The Western District Board and District Technical Committee, decided recently to transition the award to broaden the eligibility requirements to allow more papers to be submitted for consideration.
The award seeks to recognize papers published during the previous calendar year (Jan 1st to Dec 31st) with a special emphasis placed on papers that are application centric or “practice ready.” Submissions are due to Western District Technical Chair Patrick Marnell via email by March 1st.
Please visit their website for more information on this new award.

US 101 Pismo Congestion Relief Pilot Project
Paul Valadao, PE
Caltrans Project Manager
Paul’s excellent presentation was about the US 101 Pismo Congestion Relief Pilot Project. The project includes widening the southbound shoulder of US 101, widening four existing bridges, construction of a Park-and-Ride lot at Mattie Road and Price Street, and the construction of a retaining wall between US 101 and Price Street at the Pismo Rock.
We decided to update our website and selected a new domain that is consistent with ITE International, the Western District, and many other sections.
Bear with us as we make these changes over the next few weeks.
