Questions for the September Book Club Selection: "Remaking the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge"

For the September 2018 Book Club selection, TransportiCA has chosen Remaking the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge: A Case of Shadowboxing with Nature, by Dr. Karen Trapenberg Frick.  As California and the Bay Area are engaged in multifaceted discussions of infrastructure megaprojects - i.e., high-speed rail and the second Transbay crossing, the need for deep, critical analysis and reflection is greater than ever - especially with Proposition 6 on the November ballot.

With every month's selection, TransportiCA provides three questions, and if you send us all three correct responses by the end of the month, and your name is drawn, you will win a copy of the book.

The contest questions for Remaking the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge are:
(1) Dr. Trapenberg Frick received a “Best Paper of the Year” Award for research, by what major professional publication?
(2) Prior to her University professorship, Dr. Trapenberg Frick was an award-winning transportation planner at what regional planning organization?
(3) Besides U.C. Berkeley, what other major research institution does Dr. Trapenberg Frick have a significant (personal) relationship with?

Thank you for your interest in the Book Club, and best of luck with the contest!


No purchase is necessary, as questions are not taken directly from the publication, but from respective technical information and publicity.  To send in your response, submit via TransportiCA's "Contact Form" on the front-page (bottom left), sending your name, email address and answers.  The deadline for submission is 23:59, Sunday, 30 September 2018.

Dr. Karen Trapenberg Frick's "Remaking the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge" is the September Book Club Selection
