Work zone equipment for local agencies

The Cornell Local Roads Program periodically received grants from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) to purchase sets of work zone equipment for distribution at no charge to three highway and public works departments in New York State. All highway and public works departments are eligible to request a package, but priority is given to agencies that have recently lost equipment due to flood, fire, theft, or other unforeseen circumstance.

2014 / 2015 Work Zone Package Givaway!

The Cornell Local Roads Program has just received Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) funding that will allow us to hand out 20 more sets. We give priority to those that have recently lost equipment through some misfortune, but all are eligible. Contact us to receive your free work zone package!

What is in each set?

Work zone package giveaway pack

The materials in each package are listed below. The roll-up signs and stands allow for flexibility in different work zone situations. Most of the equipment will be purchased from the NYS Office of General Services (OGS) contract. The purchase price for each set is around $1,400. So, if you are not a recipient of one of these free packages you can still buy the equipment at very little cost.

How to apply

Priority will still be given to those departments that have recently lost work zone equipment due to a flood, fire, theft, or other unforeseen circumstance. If you are interested in one of these packages for your agency, especially if you have recently lost equipment, contact us by fax, email, or letter. Please provide the following information in your request:

Those agencies who receive a package will be expected to attend our next Work Zone Traffic Control workshop held in their part of New York State. Two employees from each agency may attend for free. Details regarding registration, etc., will be provided to the selected agencies.

We will select agencies as information is received. The signs and stands will be shipped directly to the department. The other items will be delivered as quickly as possible. However, selected agencies may need to drive to a Cornell Local Roads Program workshop in their area to pick up their workzone package.
