ATSSA and The Foundation: Working Together To Make Zero Deaths A Reality

Volunteering, contributions, and service are a much needed solution to our industry’s most-difficult challenge: Roadway and work zone fatalities.

The Foundation has several programs that you can feel good about. Consider becoming a life-long supporter or cause ambassador by joining us in one or more of our fundraising programs.

  • The Marty Weed Engineering Scholarship
    This scholarship honors Marty Weed, a longstanding member of ATSSA and an icon in the roadway safety industry. The scholarship is designed to provide financial assistance for new engineers who are employed by a public agency and who specialize in work zone safety and temporary traffic control to participate in ATSSA’s Annual Convention & Traffic Expo. Contributions are now being accepted through The Foundation online donor portal.

    The new design was unveiled in February 2017. Originally unveiled in April 2002, "The National Work Zone Memorial - Respect and Remembrance: Reflections of Life on the Road" program is a living tribute to people killed in work zones. The Memorial travels to communities cross-country year-round to raise public awareness of the need to respect and stay safe in America's roadway work zones.

    The Foundation now partners with “Experience Camps” to provide children of roadway workers who were killed in work zones a safe place to meet other children who are coping with similar challenges. The cost of round trip travel expenses for the child will be covered by The Foundation.
