Transportation Communications Newsletter
Wednesday, July 27, 2016 – ISSN 1529-1057

Transportation moves rural America. Rural communities need safe, viable roads and multi-modal systems to move people from place to place; and to move goods and services to markets, often across long distances. Without reliable and well-maintained transportation networks through rural areas, visitors cannot enjoy iconic travel and recreation opportunities; and businesses cannot ensure coast-to-coast delivery of goods.  In recognition of this, the National Center for Rural Road Safety is hosting a working Summit in Denver, Colorado September 7-9th.  This will not be your typical meeting as attendees will be asked to participate by identifying CHALLENGES and finding SOLUTIONS.  The early registration deadline is August 8, 2016.  Learn more here.
