    The purpose of this course is to promote safety and the proper use of flaggers for traffic control. Flagger training is important because it promotes safety for you, safety for your work crew companions, safety for pedestrians (including those with disabilities), safety for bicyclists and safety for the motoring public. Much of the information regulating work zone safety is also covered in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). The value of the job of a Flagger is VERY often underestimated by the general public. Your job sets up everything else for success or disaster. The job of controlling and directing traffic is extremely important and should be carried out with pride. This class will include outside field activities which will include practice setting up a work zone using signs and cones. We will also review and demonstrate proper flagging procedures.

    This workshop should be of interest to contractors, and their employees, safety representatives, local and state employees, and all those whose work involves street and highway operations on or adjacent to the roadway.

    There will be two half-day workshops (morning and afternoon) at each location with a maximum of 30 participants in each workshop. The cost of the workshop is $100.00. Please register at www.eng.auburn.edu/atap. The registration fee includes handout materials, break refreshments, and a certificate of participation. Participants completing this workshop will receive 0.40 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), 4.0 Professional Development Hours (PDHs). Certificates of participation will be issued the day of the event. Thank you for your continued support of the Alabama Transportation Assistance Program.

    Construction Material Costs Survey


    Much has been written about the incredible price increases in some construction materials over the past year including steel, lumber, resins, etc. This has not just been an Alabama problem, but one affecting our industry nationwide.  

    In an attempt to get a better understanding of the impact to certain segments of industry, particularly bridge builders, guardrail, stripers etc., the Alabama Road Builders Association would like to ask anyone in the industry - members and non-members - that you send us:

    1.  A brief explanation of any losses sustained due to price increases; and

    2.  Total amount of losses due to the difference from quote to purchase of material for any job awarded since November 2020 to June 2021 here in Alabama.

    Quantifying the impact will help us better explain the issue to industry and non-industry parties alike to paint a clearer picture of both the problem and the actual impacts.  There is no need to include your business name.  We are looking for an industry-wide number.

    Please email Tom Layfield with your responses and questions regarding this survey.

    NSSGA Applauds Senate Introduction of The ROCKS Act

    ALEXANDRIA, VA – The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) Vice President, Government & Regulatory Affairs Michele Stanley issued the following statement after Sens. Mark Kelly (AZ) and Rob Portman (OH) introduced the Rebuilding Our Communities by Keeping aggregates Sustainable (ROCKS) Act. This Senate companion to H.R. 611 helps to build off of NSSGA’s work of gathering cosponsors in the House bill.

    “We want to applaud Sen. Mark Kelly (AZ) and Sen. Rob Portman (OH) for introducing the Rebuilding Our Communities by Keeping Aggregates Sustainable (ROCKS) Act. We are grateful of their leadership to advance this bipartisan legislation, that promotes sustainable access to needed construction materials, which will improve the lives of all Americans.

    “Aggregates are the second most utilized product in the world and are the bedrock in the creation of buildings, roads, airports and bridges. They are indispensable in developing the infrastructure needed to access to clean water, deliver reliable energy and advance environmental stewardship. It is imperative that all communities have access to these essential resources as we work together to improve our outdated infrastructure. Sustainable, local access to aggregate materials improves construction costs, extends taxpayer dollars, reduces congestion and leads to better environmental outcomes.

    “We urge all Senators to cosponsor this critical legislation that demonstrates the importance of crushed stone, sand and gravel as essential for local communities.”
