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.
Fortunately, 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’s 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 R. 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 also will include sessions on environmental compliance, labor law, DBE compliance, insurance coverage and alternative project delivery, risk management and alternative project delivery and public-private partnerships. Professional development hours will be available.
Sessions will be led by some the nation’s top construction law attorneys, including: William Penny, member, Stites Harbison; James M. Auslander, associate, Beveridge & Diamond; Lorraine D’Angelo, senior vice president-ethics and compliance, Dragados USA; Matt DeVries, attorney, Stites & Harbison; Neal Sweeney, partner, Kilpatrick Townsend; and Chris Anzidei, Law Offices of Christopher Anzidei, PLLC.
