2011 Jack Stephens Memorial Safety Challegne Winners: l-r: Roy Gandreau-Town of Bloomfield (3rd), Josh Hebert-Town of Ellington (2nd) and Ray Sikorski-Town of Colchester (1st)

Participants discuss new technology

On September 21st, the sun peaked out from a week’s worth of clouds to shine on our 10th Annual Technology Transfer Expo in Storrs.  More than 400 participants shared in the demonstrations, educational sessions and networking that make this event so popular.  Exhibitors shared information on new technologies and processes such as Safety Edge, hot-in-place recycling, innovations in guardrail design, guidelines for fleet maintenance garages, and cost saving techniques in winter maintenance operations.  Municipal transportation professionals participated in the Annual Jack Stephens Safety Challenge with the Towns of Colchester, Hebron and Bloomfield taking top honors.  Attendees also had the opportunity to test their snowplow skills at the Driving Simulator on loan from the Rhode Island DOT and LTAP Center.  A special thank you goes out to all the volunteers and exhibitors that helped make this day such a success!  We look forward to another great show next year!
