    WCHA Executive Director Dan Fedderly, WCHA President and Barron County Highway Commissioner Mark Servi, WCHA Secretary and Price County Highway Commissioner Don Grande and WCHA Board of Directors Member and Waukesha County Director of Public Works Allison Bussler were in attendance. Mark, Don and Allison were all invited guests of the FHWA.

    See photos from the FHWA EDC-5 Conference here.

    EDC is a state–based model that identifies and rapidly deploys proven, yet underutilized innovations to shorten the project delivery process, enhance roadway safety, reduce traffic congestion, and improve environmental sustainability.

    WCHA members were invited to attend one of the five regional summits to learn about deploying the fifth round of the EDC (EDC–5).

    According to the FHWA, “The objectives of the Regional Summits are to: facilitate dialogue, encourage creative thinking, and celebrate a shared vision for new opportunities. These summits are an integral component of the EDC model, bringing together transportation leaders and front-line professionals responsible for the development and delivery of highway projects.”

    “This EDC-5 Summit gave us the opportunity to learn about innovations promoted through EDC–5, network with our state, local and industry peers and give feedback to FHWA on the support and resources needed to adopt innovations discussed,” said WCHA Executive Director Dan Fedderly. “We are excited to be a part of this event and look forward to bringing back to Wisconsin what we learned and how we can implement change.”

    Other EDC-5 Summits dates include Baltimore, Maryland October 18-19, 2018; Albany, NY October 24-25; Portland, Oregon November 8-9; and Orlando, Florida November 27-28, 2018.
