SPEAKERS ADDED TO MAY 4 HIGHWAY FORUM

 

Two additional speakers have been added to the May 4 highway forum. Byrd E. White was appointed by Governor Jim Justice to oversee S.B. 2002 passed in a special session of the West Virginia Legislature. The bill permits the sharing of information between the WV Division of Highways and state Tax Department to make sure contractors are paying all applicable taxes and fees. Mr. White will share with attendees the Tax Department’s plans on how to accomplish this without adding bureaucracy to contractors.

 

The legislature also passed H.B. 205 which modifies the West Virginia Jobs Act requiring contractors to hire at least 75 percent of their workforce within 50 miles of the West Virginia border. The bill increases the penalties for violating the Act from $100 per day per violation to $250 per employee per day of violation for the first 14 days after notice of violation; $500 per employee per day of violation continuing more than 14 days after notice of violation; and defines domicile so that a person residing in temporary or transient housing such as hotels, motels, dormitories or similar lodging does not qualify as a resident of the local labor market. WV Division of Labor Commissioner Mitch Woodrum will speak on what WVDOL inspectors will be enforcing when they inspect a jobsite.

 

Also, members of the West Virginia Minority Business Association have been invited to attend and participate to learn about future highway contracting opportunities and to give CAWV and WVMBA members an opportunity to meet and network.

 

Registration has been extended to Friday, April 27. Over 100 CAWV members have already registered. A registration form and agenda are attached to this week’s Highway/Heavy Bulletin. The form and agenda are also available online at http://www.cawv.org/events/wv-highway-construction-forum.html.

 

 

 

 

WVDOH WORK ZONE AWARENESS CAMPAIGN KICKS OFF THIS WEEK

 

 

To commemorate Work Zone Awareness Week, the West Virginia Division of Highways held a ceremony and press conference this week at the Fallen Workers Memorial at the Williamstown Welcome Center near Interstate 77. WVDOH officials held the event about work zone safety urging motorists to pay attention as construction begins on roads across West Virginia, citing an increase in recent years in work zone accidents. Officials say they will be kicking off a media campaign to “just slow down” and ramping up enforcement of speeding and doubling fines in work zones. FHWA and CAWV representatives participated in the kick-off. To see a video of the press conference, click here.

 

 

 

 

WVDOH LIVE LETTING BROADCAST GETS UPGRADE

 

 

 

 

 

Tuning in to listen or view live broadcasts of WVDOH Lettings should not be a problem as the service was just upgraded to handle up to 500 participants. The popular service is provided free of charge by the Asphalt Pavement Association of WV (APAWV) with sponsorship from the Daniels Law Firm, PLLC. A link to the broadcast is maintained on the APAWV website at www.asphaltwv.com.

 

APAWV has offered the service for many years but recently, with the size of the WVDOH program growing, demand for the service was sometimes exceeding the capacity of the software platform.

 

The service offers options for listening and/or viewing lettings. If you want to watch and listen to the broadcast from your computer, simply enter your name and email address and log-in. Be sure to turn up your computer speakers—no need to call in. To watch the broadcast in full screen mode, click the Full Screen icon     . If you just want to listen over the phone simply utilize the Phone Number and Pin found on the website. The phone number and Pin do not change.

 

For a direct link to the broadcast go to http://www.asphaltwv.com/Letting.aspx.

 

 

 

 

WVDOH UPDATES PROFILER OPERATOR AND VEHICLE CERTIFICATION (PAVEMENT SMOOTHNESS TESTING)

 

 

The WVDOH has enhanced and expanded use of their pavement smoothness specifications and upgraded the testing and certification process for both operators/technicians and inertial profilers (equipment).

 

Certification of operators can now be done through the onlinelearning.wv.gov site. Once the operator has an account established they can contact Terry Burns, (304) 558-9883, or Joseph Caudill, (304) 558-9884 at MCS&T Division, to get the test “unlocked”. Operators will not have to worry about testing until their current certification expires.

 

The new specification allows for reciprocity between states for profiler certification, so equipment currently certified in another state (equipment only) do not need to recertify locally. Those needing equipment certification can participate in a group equipment certification program done in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Transportation. Persons interested in learning more about equipment certification may contact Joseph Caudill or Pat Parsons at (304) 342-1166.

 

Those needing to check on the status of WVDOH certified technicians can search the “old “ and “new” Technician and Inspector Certification Directories at https://transportation.wv.gov/highways/mcst/Pages/techcert.aspx

 

 

 

 

2018 AGC Highway Work Zone Safety Survey

 

 

Each year, AGC of America conducts a survey of members involved in highway construction work to evaluate the state of highway work zone safety. AGC wants to collect information on the number, severity, impacts and potential solutions to highway work zone crashes. The intention is to use the information collected as the main focus of a media and public education campaign that will launch the week before Memorial Day and the traditional start of the summer driving season. Please take this important highway work zone safety survey by May 11. Click here to take the survey.
