ARTBA’s legal forum to focus on MAP-21

By |  September 10, 2012

The historic policy reforms, program consolidation and environmental improvements in the new highway and transit law—MAP-21—will result in a myriad of legal and regulatory challenges relating to the delivery of transportation improvements.

The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) has a program for transportation design and construction industry professionals wanting to make sure they are prepared to meet them. The association announced its annual Transportation Construction Law and Regulatory Forum, scheduled for Oct. 24-25 in Washington, D.C., will have a special focus on MAP-21. Federal Highway Administration Chief Counsel Fred Wagner is confirmed as the keynote speaker.

In its fourth year, the event offers participants the opportunity to learn more about the latest trends in transportation construction law and regulatory requirements, and will also include sessions on environmental compliance, labor law, DBE compliance, insurance coverage, risk management and more.

Registration is $495 for past attendees, $595 for ARTBA members, and $795 for non-members. To register or for more information, contact ARTBA’s Sara Jones at 202-289-4434, ext. 211.
