This year we are hosting a virtual Highway School over four days in the mornings of June 7th through the 10th - A Good Roads Week! This hearkens back to the roots of Highway School which grew out of Good Roads Week sessions held as early as 1905. When you register, we will send you the links to join the virtual sessions for all four days.

Start your day with some or all of our sessions. While we have produced many virtual workshops, topical webinars, and digital conferences over the past year; this time we are going to try some new ideas to shake things up and give attendees a great experience.

Here is what you can expect from the
2021 Virtual Highway School - Good Roads Week:

Live broadcasts & demonstrations from the field
Tailgate Talks
After-School Networking Hours (join after the conference sessions to chat with your colleagues from across the state)
Morning welcomes from Alex Gregor, NYSAOTSOH, Joe Wisinski, NYSCHSA, Gerry Geist, AOT, and David Orr, NYSLTAP-CLRP

About Highway School (Past In-Person Conferences)

The Highway School features short sessions of general interest in the mornings and 24-28 afternoon workshops lasting 75 minutes each. A partnership with statewide vendors supports the Pothole Picnic on the first day. Over 700 participants, the majority being local highway and public works officials, attend the Highway School every year.

The Association of Towns of the State of New York co-sponsors the Highway School, and handles all of the registrations.
