The American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA), the nationally recognized leader in work zone worker safety training, was recently awarded a $2.2 million federal contract under the 2013 Federal Highway Administration’s Work Zone Safety Grant to train roadway workers who build and maintain America’s roadways.

The three-year grant charges ATSSA to deliver numerous Traffic Control Technician and Traffic Control Supervisor training courses nationally, as well as ATSSA’s nationally acclaimed Flagger Instruction Training Course. ATSSA will also be delivering several other work zone training courses delivered under previous federal grants.

“The grant allows our highly qualified and experienced instructors to train countless roadway workers across the county who are working hard every day to make America’s roadways safer,” said ATSSA’s Director of Training Donna Clark. “ATSSA thanks the Federal Highway Administration for their confidence in ATSSA and in what our cutting-edge courses deliver.”

Since 1969, the Fredericksburg, Va.-based roadway safety association has represented companies and individuals in the traffic control and roadway safety industry. Over 1,600 ATSSA members provide the majority of features, services and devices used to make America’s roadways safer. These include pavement markings, road signs, work zone traffic control devices, guardrail and other roadside safety features.
