PROGRAM: "San Diego Autonomous Vehicle Proving Ground"
The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) designated the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) as one of ten proving grounds for autonomous vehicles in the nation. SANDAG in partnership with the California Department of Transportation District 11 (Caltrans) and the City of Chula Vista, proposed three distinct autonomous vehicle proving ground environments: the barrier- separated Interstate 15 Express Lanes; a segment of the South Bay Expressway; and local streets and roads within the City of Chula Vista.

The presentation will provide attendees with an overview of this designation, and seek ACEC member input at these early stages of preparation.
