Innovation Exchange: Tribal Transportation Safety

Posted: 11/19/2023

WEBINAR: November 30, 2023, 10:00AM - 11:30AM PT

In celebration of Native American Heritage Month (NAHM), this month's "Innovation Exchange" webinar showcases Tribal transportation safety, highlighting available resources, funding opportunities, and project success stories.

Join FHWA presenters to learn about USDOT's Tribal Transportation Program Safety Fund (TTPSF)—currently open for federally recognized tribes—that supports projects designed to reduce fatal and serious injuries in transportation related incidents.

Also presented will be successful Absentee Shawnee Tribe (AST) TTPSF projects that addressed safety concerns identified in their Tribal Safety Plan. The AST project team will share steps taken and lessons learned to successfully coordinate the completion of these projects between their tribe and the City of Norman, OK.

Webinar participants will also learn about the many safety resources availabe at the National Center for Rural Road Safety (NCRRS), including their Road Safety Champion Program.

Innovation Exchange webinars are given by subject-matter experts and thought leaders to spread new ideas, spark conversation, and promote innovative leadership for the issues confronting our nation's transportation system now and in the future.

The goal of Innovation Exchange webinars is to allow participants to (1) gain best practices of innovation deployment from subject matter experts (2) have a venue to discuss transportation related ideas and issues with other transportation partners around the country, and (3) learn and share successful practices.

FHWA encourages and challenges their transportation partners to join in and participate on each Innovation Exchange topic by watching informative presentations and engaging in Q&A discussions. Please email with questions or comments on Innovation Exchange webinars.

No registration needed, just join the webinar on November 30th at 10:00am PT
