Description

Maintaining Momentum: Finalizing a Long-Term Plan to Move South Carolina Forward

MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 2017

8:30 AM - 4:00 PM

With public support for fixing our roads at an all-time high in South Carolina, we feel that this year's annual meeting is the perfect opportunity to promote the need for additional highway funding as the Legislature begins the 2017 Legislative Session.

Further, it is a platform to educate and engage our supporters on the many resources available to assist with our campaign to improve highway and bridge infrastructure.

Dr. Black manages ARTBA’s economics staff and is responsible for over 70 studies examining national and state transportation funding and investment patterns, including the association’s landmark economic profile of the transportation construction industry, state bridge condition profiles, and annual modal forecast.
