Highway/Utility Issues Course (NHI)
The Federal Highway Administration, through the National Highway Institute (NHI), and in cooperation with the Office of Infrastructure, offers a Highway/Utility Issues course. This two day course is designed to include participants from highway agencies and from utilities. To maximize the effectiveness of the course, hosting agencies are encouraged to include participants from both communities. The optimum class size is between 20 and 30 participants.
This course presents the fundamentals of effective coordination of utility relocation and accommodation issues throughout the planning, design, construction, and maintenance phases of a highway project. Participants from both highway and utility communities will be involved throughout the course, sharing their knowledge and expertise, and collaborating in workshops, exercises, and other activities.
Additional information regarding sponsoring this course is available at the NHI web site.
