transportation equity in the Oregon region,
or looked at projects through an equity lens.
The panel consisted of representatives from
ODOT, Portland Bureau of Transportation,
and Portland State University. The subcommittee plans to coordinate with the ITE
International Diversity & Inclusion Committee to bring similar sessions and workshops
at the upcoming virtual ITE Annual Meeting.
Another issue the Section prioritizes is
sustainability, and established its Sustainability Subcommittee in 2019. Its mission
statement is to provide transportation
professionals and the public with the tools
and education to facilitate a safer and more
inclusive sustainable transportation system.
To support this mission, Oregon ITE first
partnered with Greenroads International to
join the global community on sustainability.
The Section also partnered with the ITE Sustainability Standing Committee in its efforts
to facilitate transportation solutions that
incorporate economic, social, and environmental sustainability, as these topics span
the range of ITE member interests.
With these efforts in mind, Oregon ITE
has been developing a fundraiser event to
raise money for scholarships for students
interested in sustainability, as well as working toward social events and a workshop
that will improve networking and increase
education on the subject. The Section also
held a luncheon on the Greenroads Rating
System and helped organize a recent ITE
webinar, " Tools and Resources for Integrating
Sustainability and Health into Transportation. " Subcommittee members Robert
DeVassie P.E., PMP, STP (F), Krista Purser
(M), and Kelly Rodgers (M) spoke at the
2021 ITE International Virtual Student Leadership Summit on the panel " Incorporating
Sustainability in Transportation Infrastructure and Planning. " Through these and other
efforts, the Section's vision is to advance
equitable, economical, and environmental
transportation across the state through

ITE Traffic Bowl Origins
The Oregon Section was the creator of the much
beloved traffic bowl, and hosted the first " ITE Traffic
Bowl " in 1993 at the Sweetbrier Inn in Tualatin,
OR. The event was such a success that the Section
further conceptualized the application of a similar
event as a unique " add-on " to the Western District
Annual Meeting in July 1994 for professional
networking. The success at the Western District
meeting led to nearly three decades of ongoing
student and professional events. Following a
Portland State University claimed the Oregon
Western District Board member promotion, ITE
Section's Bill Kloos Traffic Bowl title in 2017.
established the first International Traffic Bowl for
Students in 2009 which continues today. Because
of the pandemic, last year the 29th Annual Bill Kloos Traffic Bowl was held remotely via Zoom. Utilizing
break-out rooms for the 50 participants, student teams from Portland State University, Oregon State
University, and the Oregon Institute of Technology competed against each other, as well as seven other
teams consisting of students and professionals, in an online trivia event.

Members of Note
Oregon has had three International ITE Presidents:
Bruce Crandall (H) - 1952, Jim Hanks, P.E. (F) - 1997, and Randy McCourt, P.E., PTOE (F) - 2020.
