Registration is now open for the RTA field visit of 540, which will be held on the morning of Thursday, May 23rd.

CAMPO launches regional safety study

The Capital Area MPO has launched a regional safety study for roads in the CAMPO area. RTA Gold Member VHB will be the lead consultant on the study, which will take more than a year to complete. Jacob Rigg represented RTA at the initial meeting this week. The regional business community is pleased to support the efforts by CAMPO, DCHC MPO, NCDOT and other partners to improve safety on our region’s roadways.


Let’s get moving,
