HIGHWAY CONFERENCE AND ROAD SHOW
                                     Welcome county road commissioners, county road agency staff, partners, vendors,
                                     contractors, legislators, stakeholders and all dedicated to improving infrastructure in
                                     Michigan. We’re glad you joined us for the County Road Association (CRA) of Michigan’s
                                     2019 Highway Conference and Road Show!

                                     The theme for this year’s Highway Conference is “83 County Road Agencies, Many
                                     Roles.” County road agencies play vital roles throughout our state, maintaining
                                     infrastructure that is key to economic development, emergency response and
                                     tourism. Please take the time to network and talk about our many roles. Listen for
                                     those continued opportunities to collaborate and work together. We are all on the
                                     same team! After all, our citizens have placed their trust in us as county road agencies,
        Joanna Johnson, PWE          committed to public service, who time and time again have demonstrated our
            CRA President            commitment to innovation, efficiency and collaboration.
         Managing Director,
         Road Commission of          2019 will be an important year for county road agencies. Road funding secured in
          Kalamazoo County           the 2015 State Transportation Package nears its peak in 2020, while support for local
                                     transportation funding is still growing. The public realizes our infrastructure problems
                                     are still not resolved and we continue to positively share information why. As the
                                     local road professionals, we continue to apply the principles of asset management to
                                     efficiently and effectively use our limited funding, with a mix of fixes to maintain our
                                     infrastructure.

                                     We thank you all for the support of our industry and for attending the 2019
                                     Highway Conference and Road Show. We are proud to come together to share rich
