WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (The Exponent) – Gov. Mike Pence addressed the Purdue Road School with a supportive and positive message for Hoosier transportation and infrastructure officials Wednesday afternoon.

The conference, organized by the Purdue School of Civil Engineering and Indiana Department of Transportation, celebrated 100 years of technical education and coordination of the state’s transportation infrastructure community. Roughly 2,400 transportation officials attended over 160 technical sessions held throughout Purdue’s campus.

After gubernatorial predecessor and Purdue President Mitch Daniels’ opening remarks, Gov. Pence, R-Ind., began his address by thanking INDOT officials for their work during what has continued to be a “very difficult season.”
