Attached please find the announcement for the TRB Committee AFB20 Summer Meeting entitled " Design, Testing, Installation & Maintenance of Traffic Barriers: How MASH and On-going Research Will Affect You". The meeting is scheduled for May 31- June 3 at the Hotel Contessa in San Antonio, Texas. We have a very full agenda that includes presentations and discussions primarily focused on traffic barriers and I believe this will be a very exciting and informative meeting.
This meeting will include, for the first time, a joint session with the AASHTO-AGC-ARTBA Task Force 13. The Task Force 13 meeting that will continue from June 3 to June 5, 2009. A separate agenda and registration form will be sent out soon and you are encouraged to attend both of these meetings if possible. http://www.aashtotf13.org,
