In Spring 2011, several members of the Infrastructure Research Group (pictured below) traveled to Ghana for a transportation study tour. Ghana is a democratic country in Western Africa with a population of approximately 22 million and land area comparable to the state of Oregon. It is a developing country with a growing, urbanizing population. The purposes of the visit were to investigate Ghana’s transportation challenges and opportunities for sustainable development and to establish relationships with researchers, consultants, and leaders in the transportation community.
