December 2009 — The Western Transportation Institute will be initiating a Road Dust Institute. This initiative will foster partnerships and promote research, education, and technology transfer to ensure best management practices for dust control.
The Road Dust Institute is a part of the Western Transportation Institute’s strategic direction, aiding growth of the Road Dust Management and Future Needs Conference and supporting dust related research, such as the National Scan of Best Practices for Chemical Treatments on Unpaved Roads. The Transcend research facility provides the opportunity to conduct fundamental and applied research that addresses the needs for dust control solutions without disruption to the traveling public.
Please contact us for additional information on the road dust initiative, Road Dust and Future Needs Conference, and Scan Tour of Best Practices.
