The Mack-Blackwell Transportation Center is dedicated to improving the quality of life in America through our transportation research, education, and workforce development programs. The center has been a U.S. Department of Transportation University Transportation Center since 1992. The Mack-Blackwell Transportation Center builds on its geographic access to road, river, and rail corridors and industry access to global logistics leaders to lead nationally relevant multimodal research to carry people and freight to their destinations efficiently and effectively. The center works closely with the Arkansas Department of Transportation and many other transportation stakeholders across the nation.
