UofM to Help Advance State's Transportation System

Dr. Shahram Pezeshk, PI

The University of Memphis was recently awarded a $1,000,000 contract with the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) through the University Technical Assistance Program (UTAP). The purpose of this program is to receive assistance from state-based universities to help advance the state’s transportation system through statewide and/or regional planning initiatives using state-based university faculty and staff resources, leverage institutional expertise and increase partnerships with state-based universities, and increase the ability for state higher education institutions to provide technical services beyond typical research related opportunities. The program moves innovative transportation technologies and practices into the hands of the people charged with maintaining Tennessee’s local transportation systems. The awarded contract is effective as of August 1, 2022, and terminates July 31, 2024.

The contract awarded to the University of Memphis includes 21 faculty members from ten departments and is headed by Dr. Shahram Pezeshk, Chair and Professor of Civil Engineering.
