About the Idaho LHTAC T2 Center Road Scholar / Road Master Program
The cities, counties, and highway districts are responsible for the majority of roads within the state of Idaho - over 32,000 miles of highways, roads, and streets. These highways, roads and streets are seeing an ever increasing traffic demand. With the increased demand and new technologies comes the need for more diverse skills and knowledge necessary for maintenance and preservation activities on the roadways. The transportation professionals that are constructing and maintaining these roadways need to be recognized for their efforts at keeping up-to-date on the new technologies and skills required to construct and maintain effective highway systems.
The Idaho Road Scholar Program is a way for local road professionals in our state to be recognized for successfully completing a series of training courses. The program curriculum is designed to provide participants with the fundamentals of safety, management, and advanced technologies, as well as exposure to a wide variety of other topics relevant to the transportation field. Through this program, the local agencies will also be provided an opportunity to develop the agencies’ greatest asset - its employees.
