LTRC is hosting NHI Course No. 134006 – Utility Coordination for Highway Projects on January 23-24, 2019 at the Transportation Training and Education Center (TTEC), 4099 Gourrier Avenue, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The target audience for this course includes Federal, State, and local personnel who are responsible for planning, designing, constructing, operating, and maintaining transportation facilities that involve the accommodation or relocation of utilities. It is most effectively delivered with participation from representatives of public and private utility companies, DOT contractors, risk managers, right-of-way staff, mid-to-senior level managers, and engineering consultants. The participation of utility company representatives in particular will be integral to the success of the course. I am requesting for individuals to pass this course announcement along to utility company personnel who might have an interest in attending this course.
