Demo Day to showcase drones

The Minnesota Roadway Maintenance Training and Demo Day will be held May 16 at the Olmsted County Fairgrounds in Rochester. Attendees will earn a Roads Scholar credit.

Demo Day is showcasing an exciting new topic this year: drones as an emerging technology for use in our transportation system. Drones have many potential uses—from inspection and maintenance of construction and existing infrastructure assets, to operations, traffic crash investigations, and emergency response. What other possible uses could they have? We would love to hear your ideas!

You will also have the opportunity to refresh and learn new ways to properly inspect securement devices and secure cargo according to regulation requirements. You'll also hear about the latest in CDL rules. And, just in time for summer, we'll bring you up to speed on the latest in asphalt pavement maintenance and show demos on spray velocity and slurry patching.

We hope to see you there!
