National Tribal Road Maintenance Symposium

Please plan to attend the inaugural National Tribal Road Maintenance Symposium May 14-16, 2024. This event will bring together Tribal Road Maintenance practitioners with Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Division of Transportation and BIA Regional Tribal Transportation Program staff to provide information on administrative and field operations components of federal road maintenance programs and resources for Tribal governments. This event is designed to provide support for Tribal Transportation Directors, Supervisors, Planners, Office Staff, Equipment Operators, Project Managers and others to learn about the BIA Road Maintenance Program and related federal standards and requirements. Tribal programs will also have the opportunity to share experiences on improving road maintenance practices and advancing tribal transportation infrastructure and safety.
