TRB – ATSSA Traffic Control Device Challenge wins award

The jointly sponsored Transportation Research Board (TRB) – ATSSA Traffic Control Device (TCD) Challenge has won recognition for its project partner, the Committee on Traffic Control Devices as a TRB “2018 Blue Ribbon Committee.” The TRB is part of the National Academy of Sciences, Medicine and Engineering.

The TCD Challenge, which was piloted for the first time in 2017, presents a “problem statement” regarding infrastructure safety devices to engineering students. ATSSA and the Committee on Traffic Control Devices promote the challenge to colleges and universities and select a first, second and third place winner. ATSSA awards a small cash prize and a trip to ATSSA’s Annual Convention & Traffic Expo to those winners who are able to interact with our members and exhibitors and learn first-hand about infrastructure safety.

The TRB award focused on the program’s effect on Community Building and Mentoring, making students more aware of the opportunities in transportation engineering, and in this case to solve real problems and save lives on our roadways. Only five of the numerous TRB committees received this award. ATSSA congratulates our partners on the Committee on Traffic Control Devices.
