Kenneth K. Wert, chairman of Haskell Lemon Construction Co., an ACPA member, has been elected 2020 chairman of the Board of Directors of The Road Information Program (TRIP), a national transportation research nonprofit based in Washington, DC.
Ken joined the TRIP Board of Directors in 2012 and was appointed to its executive committee in 2016. Founded in 1948, Haskell Lemon Construction is a third generation family-owned and operated business working exclusively in the state of Oklahoma. Ken’s father, Peter K. Wert, has served on the TRIP board of directors since 1990.
“For three decades Haskell Lemon Construction has strongly supported TRIP’s efforts to increase public awareness of the need to invest in America’s surface transportation system and I look forward to leading this fine organization,” he says. “TRIP’s efforts to inform the public and lawmakers about the critical issues facing America’s transportation system are more important than ever as lawmakers debate federal surface transportation funding in the nation’s capital; improving America’s surface transportation system impacts our lives every day by increasing our safety, mobility and accessibility, here in Oklahoma, and throughout the country.”
