Build a Better Mousetrap National Winners Webinar


Thursday, September 15, 2022 | 2:00–3:30 p.m. ET
Build a Better Mousetrap is a national initiative by the Federal Highway Administration to recognize front line workers
who use innovative solutions in their transportation programs. For this webinar, we will hear from the winning local
agencies who developed innovations that solved problems in their maintenance and emergency management programs.
These innovations saved time, money and increased safety for their workers and their communities.

Isabel Olivieri from the Autonomous Municipality of Toa Baja, Puerto Rico
