Phoenix, Ariz. – Valley Partnership has announced the topic for its upcoming monthly breakfast on Friday, November 14th. This month’s program will feature an update on current road, highway and infrastructure projects in Valley’s construction pipeline.

The Transportation Update panel will feature Michael Kies, director of planning and programming, Arizona Department of Transportation; Eric Anderson, transportation director, Maricopa Association of Governments; and David M. Martin, president, Arizona Chapter-Associated General Contractors. The panel will be moderated by Andrew Smigielski, principal/senior traffic engineer, Southwest Traffic Engineering.

“The continued development and improvement of infrastructure across the Valley is vital to economic development of metro Phoenix and Arizona as whole,” said Richard Hubbard, president and CEO of Valley Partnership. “Well-planned, strategically-situated infrastructure is the framework upon which all other commercial real estate and economic development is built. It’s important the commercial real estate and development communities are educated current and future projects and the opportunities and challenges that come along with them.”
