“It is a true honor to serve alongside these industry leaders. I have wanted e-Ticketing to be a construction standard for a long time, but the industry had to be ready for it. With the e-Ticketing Task Force being launched, it shows that the time for action is now.” stated Janet Treadway. “I am excited to share my perspective of how state Department of Transportation officials will navigate the ins and outs and embrace this technology shift.”
Treadway will serve as the Department of Transportation Engagement Lead for the e-Ticketing Task Force. She brings decades of experience with the internal workings of state agencies, and in her current role as the AASHTOWare Project Business Administrator, Electronic Project Delivery Management Lead, she understands how vital e-Construction and e-Ticketing is to the entire construction materials supply chain.
“We said at the kick-off that this was the start of something monumental — this is a true movement. I am excited to have Janet join the Task Force Leadership Team, as it demonstrates the seriousness of this moment and that the public construction sector wants to embrace change,” stated Joe Spinelli, the Task Force Co-Chair. “Implementing 21st Century tools on the jobsite will allow for the nation to remain globally competitive while also repairing our aging roads, highways, and bridges especially with the amount of forthcoming work thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Package.”
In 2020 the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) introduced “e-Ticketing” as part of its Every Day Counts-6 (EDC-6) 2020 program. Every Day Counts is a means for FHWA to introduce, bi-annually, innovative programs and policies to be led at the local and state level for the purpose of integrating automation, shortening delivery process, and improving roadway safety. “e-Ticketing is a paperless process for creating, sharing, tracking, documenting, and archiving materials information, accessible in real time via mobile devices, provides all stakeholders with an electronic means to verify materials deliveries while enhancing safety, streamlining inspections, and improving contract administration procedures.”
