The U.S. Arctic's extreme operating environment poses unique challenges to land and coastal-based infrastructure development. Please join the U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS) and the Wilson Center Polar Institute for a conversation on these challenges and how they affect projections of future maritime traffic, existing development activities, and the emerging vision of the Alaska of tomorrow.
The CMTS Industry Outreach Workshop was held on Monday, June 11 at the U.S. Department of Transportation and was attended by nearly 70 marine transportation system (MTS) stakeholders and partners. Eleven Federal partners shared their vision of maritime infrastructure from Administration priorities to ongoing Agency actions.
Please join the U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS) and its Marine Transportation System (MTS) Federal partners as they share their vision on maritime infrastructure. Infrastructure in this context addresses not only physical infrastructure, but also informational infrastructure (such as aids to navigation, nautical charts, and real-time meteorological and oceanographic services) and mariner needs.
Please join the U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS) during National Infrastructure Week 2018 for a discussion on port infrastructure resilience and lessons learned from the dramatic 2017 hurricane season. This discussion provides the opportunity to learn from Federal MTS agencies and stakeholders, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Department of Homeland Security Office of Infrastructure Protection, and the American Association of Port Authorities.
