McMillan was a featured speaker.  The Second SGR Roundtable covered several sub themes with many relevant presentations:

The Roundtable began with a tour of CTA’s rail transit system and provided a forum for transit properties to discuss and share best practices on addressing issues associated with the state of repair of transit infrastructure and equipment as well as transit asset management.  Participants and FTA shared ideas on solutions and research activities to advance the State of Good Repair.  The following are the presentations made during the SGR Roundtable.
