In collaboration with the Aurora pooled fund, Snow and Ice Pooled Fund Cooperative Program, FHWA, and the Pacific Northwest Snowfighters, Clear Roads helped to organize and host four national winter maintenance peer exchange conferences dedicated to information sharing and research coordination among winter maintenance professionals in 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013.
Representatives from 41 states plus Washington, D.C., attended the 2013 peer exchange, and work continues on the 158 research problem statements developed. For reports, related documents and updates on follow-up activities for the peer exchanges, see the Montana State University website and the SICOP website.
Clear Roads co-sponsored the 2015 National Winter Maintenance Peer Exchange, which was held in Bloomington, Minnesota. Information on the 2015 peer exchange is available on the SICOP website.
Clear Roads is again co-sponsoring the 2017 Peer Exchange, which will be held in Pittsburgh, PA the week of September 11th. Contact Greg Waidley with any questions you may have.
