American Society of Highway Engineers joins Roadway Infrastructure Safety Coalition

|  May 27, 2009 |

The American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) has joined The Roadway Infrastructure Safety Coalition (RISC).


RISC was created to work to reduce deaths on America’s roadways by improving roadway safety infrastructure through the federal legislative, regulatory and budgetary process. Evidence suggests that roadway infrastructure plays a significant role in as much as one third of the deaths that occur annually, according to RISC.


The coalition is currently composed of the following organizations: the American Highway Users Alliance (The Highway Users), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA), the National Association of Counties (NACo), the National Association of County Engineers (NACE) and the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO).
