(WASHINGTON)—The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) is once again bringing a first-class, virtual education experience to the desktops of hundreds of city and county government officials charged with helping build, manage and maintain the millions of miles of roads, bridges and transit systems that make up the U.S. transportation network.
The free, online learning event, known as LōTrans™, the Local Transportation Management & Safety Virtual Conference, will take place December 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., EST, on your nearest desktop or laptop computer.
Sessions on asset management, state and local trends in transportation funding, best practices in maintaining unpaved roads, snow removal, flagging on low volume roads, temporary traffic control measures on gravel roads, and encore presentations on road work zone safety issues are on the agenda.
Now in its third year, LoTrans™ was organized with the leadership, counsel and support of ARTBA’s Transportation Officials Division (TOD), which includes city, county, state and federal officials from across the nation. It is being supported by the National Association of County Engineers, the National Local Technical Assistance Program Association, and the National Work Zone Safety Information Clearinghouse.
Established in 1902, the Washington, D.C.-based ARTBA is the “consensus voice” of the U.S. transportation design and construction industry.
