Representatives of Olsson Associates will present on the Missouri Hyperloop Feasibility Study.

Blake Hansen and Jeff McKerrow of Olsson Associates will present on and discuss with you this futuristic approach to transportation.

As Engineers we must all relize that what was "Buck Rogers" yesterday is implemented and working in the field today.

This type of transportation or some form of it is where the Future is going to lie.

Mr. McKerrow and Mr. Hansen will discuss the Hyperloop project along the I-70 corridor in Missouri. The proposed extent is from Kansas City to St. Louis. Olsson Associates are teamed with Black and Veatch to complete the feasibility study. The study is to examine routing, economic impact, portal locations, ridership, and the funding elements. 

Jeff McKerrow is a transportation leader with 22 years of experience in all aspects of transportation planning and engineering.

Blake Hansen is a transportation technology specialist with more than 20 years of experiance in transportation engineering, traffic operations and transportation technology.

Please come listen to this proposed future scenario of transportation in Missouri and the nation.

Where is Technology going to take the future of transportation?

All things are on the table people.

How is it going to effect YOU!
