Event Details



On April 6, 2017, California state legislature approved Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. SB 1 is the largest infusion of transportation funding for California since the 2006 Proposition 1B bond act. Since then, SB 1 has generated revenue for a number of transportation projects through the state, including Orange County.  For our September 2019 luncheon, ASCE Transportation & Development Institute and Government Relations Committee would like to provide our members and local elected officials an opportunity to hear from the heads of our County’s leading transportation agencies regarding the impacts and updates of SB 1. The panel discussion will include the following topics:

  • Discussion of how SB 1 funds distributed by the state to Orange County, and its cities;
  • On-going SB 1-funded projects and anticipated benefits into the future;
  • Operational costs to maintain and repair existing infrastructures, as well as investments to increase access and mobility options, that would not have otherwise been possible without SB 1;
  • The future of SB 1 and California's Infrastructure Report Card.

Panel Speakers:

Ryan Chamberlain (District 12 Director, Caltrans)

Ryan Chamberlain is a 20-year veteran of the California Department of Transportation. He returned to his hometown in 2019 to serve as Caltrans District 12 Director.

Before that, Chamberlain served as Caltrans District 12 Director since 2012. As District Director, Chamberlain is responsible for planning, designing, constructing, operating and maintaining the State transportation system in Orange County, a metropolitan area of 798 square miles, 34 cities, approximately 3.2 million people, and is crisscrossed by 17 state highway routes. District 12 maintains and operates 277 route and 2,067 lane miles of highway as well as one of the largest HOV lane networks in California. Chamberlain graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara, with a degree in environmental studies. He and his wife Jodi have two children.

Jim Beil (Executive Director of Capital Programs, Orange County Transportation Authority)

Jim Beil's work at OCTA includes high-profile projects such as the M2 Early Action Plan, railroad grade separation projects, Metrolink service expansion, railroad crossing enhancement projects and quiet zones program. Beil was responsible for directing Caltrans capital improvement programs in Orange County, serving as the primary "single focal point" with federal, state, local, and regional agencies for programming and delivery of transportation facilities, maintenance facilities, and railroad grade separations. He also was responsible for all state highway construction administration and oversight of state highway construction contracts in Orange County for Caltrans. Beil, 48, is a graduate of Cal Poly Pomona, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in construction engineering and management. He is a lifelong resident of Orange where he lives with his wife, Judy, and their two young sons.

The Orange County Branch Transportation and Development Institute (T&DI) was established in September 2016 as an evolution of the long-standing Transportation Technical Group (TTG). The mission of the Orange County Branch T&DI  is to advance the transportation engineering, planning and development community in a manner consistent with the purpose of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Transportation and Development Institute of ASCE and also to provide members with opportunities to expand and share their knowledge and expertise of transportation engineering, planning, construction and development, particularly as it relates to the unique environment of the Orange County Branch area.

The T&DI hosts technical lectures, specialty seminars, tours and other events to give our members the opportunity to interact with other professionals in the transportation and development fields of civil engineering and to provide continuing education events that are relevant to T&DI members. We hope you will come out and participate in our Institute and work with us to build a strong organization.
