Construction Practices Subcommittee

The mission of the Construction Practices Subcommittee is to provide a forum that represents the interest of local governments and utilities, while facilitating the transfer of knowledge, information and best management practices with respect to public and private construction activities in the public rights-of-way.

The subcommittee reviews new construction technologies and methods and evaluates their effectiveness.  The subcommittee also seeks to educate state and public works agencies and local regulators about natural gas industry programs and undertake efforts that restore street cuts and pavement restoration more quickly, with less public impact, better quality and often at a lower cost.
