ATSSA president urges lieutenant governors to declare roadway industry workers “essential”

ATSSA President & CEO Stacy Tetschner sent a letter to the nation’s lieutenant governors today, asking them to declare ATSSA members in the category of “essential critical infrastructure workers” as defined by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

“Although ATSSA members fall into the categories outlined by DHS as essential, we urge you and the Governor to explicitly indicate that these industries in your state be deemed essential,” Tetschner wrote.

He noted that “the trucking industry relies on a safe road network to deliver essential goods to stores, hospitals and to millions of Americans. Traffic control companies ensure that work zones continue to be as safe as possible for both the roadway worker and the traveling public by ensuring that work zone safety devices remain in their proper location and position for the duration of the construction period.”

Earlier this week, Tetschner sent a similar letter to the nation’s governors.
