Why should you attend PennDOT Symposium?
Every municipal budget across the commonwealth shares the same big line item: road maintenance and safety. It’s the road crew’s job to keep roads smooth, free from potholes, without snow during winter storms, and draining properly when the spring rain falls. Municipalities and their crews are also responsible for new construction, signage, work zone safety, asset management, and even personnel management.

How can you be sure you are doing the best possible job with limited resources? By attending PennDOT’s 2020 Municipal Road Maintenance and Safety Symposium, where you will hear from road maintenance experts, transportation safety professionals, and municipal officials who have a deep understanding of standard road maintenance and safety practices, as well as an eye on new products, services, and technologies.
