Dan Dulaski, a professional engineer and soil evaluator in Massachusetts, spoke on “Identifying a Discernable Centerline Rumble Strip to Improve Traffic Operations and Safety – Why and How?” noon Thursday in Acopian Engineering Center 327.

The talk was sponsored by the civil and environmental engineering department.

“Civil engineers in the 21st century are faced with a challenge that is greater than ever before, where issues affecting the quality of life continue to be at the forefront of sound civil engineering design,” says Dulaski. “This challenge applies to all civil engineering disciplines, including transportationI believe that we can continue to ensure the safety and security of users of all transportation facilities, maintain a quality of service that users expect on the network, while continuing to ensure the economic vitality of a region through assistance from the academic environment.”
