Highway Technology Calendar

The following events provide opportunities to learn more about Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) products and technologies, as well as other technologies for building better, safer roads.

Fourth Annual Eastern Winter Road Maintenance Symposium and Equipment Expo

September 8-9, 1999, Albany, NY

The symposium and accompanying equipment expo are targeted at winter maintenance managers and other public works practitioners from cities, townships, counties, and States east of the Mississippi River, as well as staff from other public agencies and the private sector. The symposium will cover such topics as snow and ice control, road weather information systems, anti-icing techniques, and post-storm cleanup strategies. It is being cohosted by the New York State Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
