The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has invited interested ARTBA members to participate in its new series of six national webinars as part of the fourth round of its Every Day Counts program (“EDC-4”).

This series will focus on using e-Construction (a “paperless” approach to project management) and partnering practices on highway projects, as well as the benefits of deploying them together, a concept FHWA calls “e-CP.”  The agency sees synergies in utilizing both e-Construction, which involves more recent technologies, and partnering, a practice that dates back more than 30 years in the highway sector, but is being updated with modern management tools and methods.

The first webinar–Overview of EDC-4 e-Construction and Partnering: A Vision for the Future–is scheduled for 2 to 3:30 p.m. Eastern, Jan. 24. Register for this free event

More information, including details about Webinar #2, Feb. 28, and Webinar #3, March 28, are in the linked flyer. Webinars #4, #5 and #6 will be scheduled and presented this fall.

Launched in 2011 with ARTBA among its stakeholder participants, FHWA’s Every Day Counts program seeks to identify and rapidly deploy proven – yet underutilized – innovations to shorten the highway project delivery process, enhance roadway safety, reduce traffic congestion, and improve environmental sustainability.
