If you think our transportation projects keep getting more and more expensive, you are not alone. Cost overruns seem to be a chronic and growing problem for big transportation projects. How can these costs be reined in? Our experts have looked at best practices from around the world and will share their thoughts about how we can make cost estimates for transportation projects more realistic and more reliable. Co-presented by Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT).
