Transportation provides access to
jobs, education, health care, recreation, housing, and critical goods and
services that are critically important to the livability, economic vitality,
health, and sustainability of communities. The ever-changing landscape of
transportation needs and new technologies has created a complex set of
challenges, opportunities, and issues for transportation practitioners,
government leaders, policy makers, and the private sector. The Institute for
Public Administration (IPA) conducts a variety of planning- and policy-focused
transportation research initiatives to help transportation stakeholders.

IPA Policy Scientist Troy Mix presents on the benefits of the Healthy and Transit-Friendly Development Act during a Delaware transportation policy forum.
IPA conducts interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral, and applied research to examine real-world transportation policy and planning issues. Sharing outcomes of transportation policy research is accomplished through broad dissemination of research reports and products, workshops and policy forums, and outreach to transportation partners and stakeholders. In addition, IPA provides “on-call” transportation research to assist
DelDOT in advancing a cooperative, continuous, and comprehensive framework for
making transportation investment decisions throughout the state of Delaware.
Topics of research vary and on-call work responds to emerging topics related to
the interface of land-use, information technology, and transportation policy.
In 2015, Bethany Beach's Pennsylvania Avenue saw an immense amount of flooding in the wake of Hurricane Joaquin.
IPA works with Delaware local governments to
plan for climate change impacts and develop strategies to reduce vulnerability,
build community resiliency, and enhance long-term sustainability.
Concerns about environmental quality, social equity,
economic vitality, and climate change have intersected to heighten interest in
sustainable transportation, land use, community growth and development. Sensible land-use practices
maintain Delaware’s high quality of life while supporting an environment that
grows businesses and preserves our critical natural and fiscal resources. IPA translates engineering and planning
concepts into relatable, practical guides for Delaware’s local governments.
