View from the Road - September 2017
David Orr PE, Director, CLRP
At the end of September, the NYSDOT and FHWA will be hosting an Innovation Day in Albany. Speakers include the NYSDOT Chief Engineer and the FHWA Division Administrator. Attendees from many local agencies will be present. If you are interested in participating, please let me know and I will see if there is still space.
I have been asked to speak on innovation from a local perspective,
Some of the ideas I already have include:
I will share the best ideas with the other attendees. If you suggest an idea it will be added to a drawing for a free CLRP workshop certificate for one person from your agency.
An innovation can be a thing, a process, or even a way to communicate. It may come from FHWA or NYSDOT, or it may come from your crew in the field. Remember, an innovation does not have to be new. Tony Furst, Director, FHWA Office of Innovative Program Delivery describes innovation as “new to you, market ready, and proven.” Let’s share some ideas and innovations to help each other.
