The Oklahoma Transportation Center envisions transportation systems that provide
safe, efficient movement of people and goods in global, national and local communities.
The Oklahoma Transportation Center expects to marshal the talents and resources
of the participating universities (OSU, OU, and LU) as well as Oklahoma-based private
industry, governments and transportation professionals to provide world-class solutions
to challenges in building, designing and maintaining transportation systems.
“Economic Enhancement Through Infrastructure Stewardship”.
The economic vitality of this nation is linked directly to productivity and efficiency
of our Surface Transportation System. The creation and development of the Interstate
Highway System has stimulated our economy by effectively linking every part of this
nation and creating timely accessibility never before experienced. The next fifty
years will be full of challenges and opportunities for the economic growth, but
we must keep pace with the increasing demands for capacity, safety and productivity.
Oklahoma is positioned to be instrumental in the development of key transportation
corridors to facilitate economic expansion attendant thereto. There are technical
and physical limitations to the existing system that are obstacles to increased
productivity, safety and security that must be addressed to realize the full potential
and economic opportunities for our State and Nation.
The Oklahoma Transportation Center proposes to systematically address these issues
using the collaborative efforts of the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University
and Langston University in conjunction with transportation professionals in government
and industry by marshalling the best talent available to examine and advance innovative
solutions to these problems of structural limitations, inadequate capacity, security
