Jack Cebe (MCRP + CEE Class of ’17) receives Eno Fellowship and places 3rd in APA Student Paper Competition
Each year since 1992, the Eno Center for Transportation has invited America’s top graduate students in transportation-related fields to spend a week in Washington, DC, to learn how transportation policies are developed from those who develop them. Beyond providing an introduction to “how Washington works,” the Leadership Development Conference is intended to motivate students to continue their transportation studies and to foster early professional development.
Jack Cebe, a current SCaRP and CEE graduate student, has been been selected by the Board of Regents of the Eno Center for Transportation to participate in the 2016 Eno Future Leaders Development Conference, and become an Eno Fellow.
The Eno Future Leaders Development Conference is designed for students in transportation-related programs, including engineering, planning, public policy, public administration, economics, management, and law. Nominees are identified by their home university, and must demonstrate leadership ability and the potential to assume a senior role in a transportation-related organization in the future.
Jack’s selection as an Eno Fellow comes immediately after he learned that his paper, An Evaluation of "Road Diet" Projects on 5-lane and Greater Roadways, won third place in the American Planning Association Student Paper Competition.
"Cities are increasingly reallocating vehicular space on existing roadways to other uses such as bike lanes to help meet safety and multi-modal transportation goals,” Cebe says. "While there have been many studies evaluating the impacts of four to three lane roadway reallocation projects, also known as 'Road Diets,' there have been no studies investigating roadway reallocation projects on larger roads.”
Cebe’s paper investigates the impacts of these projects on safety, traffic operations, and multi-modal use through a literature review and analysis of twenty case studies of "Road Diet" projects on five-lane and greater roadways.
Congratulations to Cebe!
