Some of the nation’s top transportation construction safety experts will share timely information about training workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, automated vehicles in work zones, and smart project site development during the National Work Zone Management Conference.

The free event will be held in a virtual format from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Eastern, March 16-18. Visit the conference website to register.

New products, videos, and training will be released 30 minutes before the first session of each day. The Remo digital platform offers an interactive experience where attendees can network with colleagues, visit sponsors and exhibitors, chat with other attendees, and watch presentations.

Anyone interested in hosting a virtual exhibit should contact me.

The focus of the biennial conference is to reduce road user and worker fatalities and injuries, minimize congestion, and improve performance at roadway construction sites. It is hosted by the National Work Zone Safety Information Clearinghouse, which is managed by ARTBA’s Foundation through a cooperative agreement with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
