Next week is the 73rd Highway School here in Ithaca. We will be close to our record attendance of 769 attendees! More details about this year's School are given below.

While we are happy with the program, we know the best part of the School is you! Your attendance, participation, willingness to serve on panels, and recruit others in the highway community to come down to Ithaca are really what make the School successful.

While you are here, ask questions of the speakers, interact with others while sharing a meal at the Pothole Picnic or Tailgate Tuesday, or stop by a little early to watch the morning video. You never know when you will find an answer to your questions. Or, maybe you are the person who can answer someone else's question!

We look forward to seeing you next week!!
