A View from the Road—June 2016
David Orr PE, Director, CLRP
Sometimes it is about the numbers. 740 of you have signed up for the 2016 Highway School as of the end of May! That’s 488 towns, 27 counties, 5 cities and 36 villages represented along with numerous folks from our statewide partners, NYSDOT, FHWA, and industry. If everyone is able to come to Ithaca next week and we get the typical number of walk-in registrations, we may actually have more than 750 attendees at this year's School. That's great! Still, that is only half of the towns and counties and less than 10 percent of the cities and villages. If you come, you will be able to see how we are turning the Highway School in a new direction, literally!
