In light of the Transportation Research Board’s decision to hold a fully virtual annual meeting in January, the Traffic Control Device Student Challenge will skip a year and move to 2022.

ATSSA partners with the Transportation Research Board (TRB) Standing Committee on Traffic Control Devices in holding this annual contest that gives students the opportunity to propose solutions to real-world issues in the transportation industry. Students traditionally present their projects for judging during the TRB annual convention held each January and then the three winners make presentations during ATSSA’s Annual Convention & Traffic Expo held a short time later.

At a time when lives are restricted due to the global pandemic and many people are looking for ways to make a difference, The ATSS Foundation has an option.

The Foundation needs volunteers to help gather the names of men and women who lost their lives in work zone incidents so they can be honored by inclusion on the  National Work Zone Memorial.

“Families whose lives have been marked by work zone tragedies continue to need our help. One way to support them while maintaining social distancing and without even leaving your home is to help gather names of people who should be honored and remembered on the Memorial,” said Foundation Associate Director Lori Diaz.
