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 six national winter maintenance peer exchange conferences dedicated to information sharing and research coordination among winter maintenance professionals in 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017. For reports, related documents and updates on follow-up activities for the peer exchanges, see the SICOP website.
Clear Roads co-sponsored the 2017 National Winter Maintenance Peer Exchange, which was held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Information on the 2017 peer exchange is available here.
In 2020, the peer exchange will merge with the quadrennial conference held by TRB’s Winter Maintenance and Surface Transportation Committees to become the 2020 International Road Weather and Winter Maintenance Conference and Peer Exchange. Sponsored by TRB, Aurora, Clear Roads and SICOP, this event will be held the week of September 21, 2020, in Atlanta. See this announcement from the conference organizers for more information.
