FHWA Offers Workforce Insights in Partnership Meeting

A Highway Construction Workforce Partnership (HCWP) partners’ meeting provided insights into the solutions to federal programs aimed at addressing workforce issues, including shortages and developmental programs.  

The meeting began with opening remarks by Tony Furst, FHWA Chief Innovation Officer, and Nancy Rooney, U.S. Department of Labor Deputy Assistant Secretary. Leif Wathne of ACPA and Jay Hansen of NAPA both had an opportunity to share comments with the group.

The meeting covered a variety of topics, including outreach/marketing, FHWA HCWP grants, and a notice of proposed rulemaking for an apprenticeship program. Participants also received a summary of HWCP activity in various states and cities.

The meeting was held on November 4 and was  hosted by the FHWA’s Center for Transportation Workforce Development and took place at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) headquarters in Washington, DC. In addition to the key agencies, other partners include AGC, ARTBA, AASHTO, the DOL’s Employment and Training Administration, and NAPA.
