        This is the title graphic for the 2017 Progress North Texas State of the Region Publication

There are few things in transportation more exciting than automated vehicles, smart traffic signals and guaranteed travel speeds. This past year, the North Central Texas Council of Governments established a new program area to study automated vehicles and related topics. While there is tremendous momentum behind vehicle automation, there are many more examples of how we are using technology to reshape the future.

Progress North Texas 2017: Moving into the Future Using Innovative Transportation Technologies examines how technology is at work in transportation planning.

We would like to congratulate the winners and thank Grand Prairie ISD for helping us make this one of the most successful art contests yet. The winner's artwork will appear on the cover on the cover of Progress North Texas 2017.
