The concept of megaregions has gained increasing prominence in the transportation sector in the past decade, with formal recognition through the Transportation Research Board (TRB) resulting in the establishment of a Megaregions Subcommittee (ADA20(1)). The subcommittee and FHWA sponsored a workshop on Sunday, January 10, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Washington Convention Center. The workshop presented emerging research and practitioner perspectives on megaregions. Participants discussed the political, economic, and technical issues that must be overcome to address transportation at a megaregions scale.
