Senator Hickenlooper Tours Transportation Technology Center (TTC)

U.S. Senator John Hickenlooper (CO) joined leaders from the City and County on Pueblo, CO, Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), CSU Pueblo, and ENSCO, Inc. for a tour of the Transportation Technology Center (TTC) in Pueblo, Colorado.


The visit highlighted the important role TTC plays in advancing railway safety, efficiency, reliability and sustainability as well as supporting the local Pueblo economy with hi-tech jobs and through the many visitors the center draws to Pueblo each year. Senator Hickenlooper, representing Colorado, reiterated his support for the bipartisan Railway Safety Act, initiated in response to a freight car derailment in East Palestine, Ohio in February 2023. Notably, last October, a coal train derailment just north of Pueblo resulted in a bridge collapse, tragically claiming the life of a semi-truck driver. Senator Hickenlooper proposed amendments to the bill aimed at bolstering emergency response capabilities in rural areas.




ENSCO, Inc. is the operator of the Transportation Technology Center (TTC) located in Pueblo, Colorado, on behalf of the Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). Spanning 52 square miles, the TTC is dedicated to innovating and advancing research, development, testing, and training to improve safety, security, and sustainability in all forms of surface transportation. The TTC is also home to the Center for Critical Infrastructure Protection (CCIP).

Located at 55500 DOT Road, Pueblo, CO 81001, the TTC stands as a cornerstone of innovation and advancement. Explore the vast TTC capabilities.
