In partnership with Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Colorado 811, ACEC Colorado invites you to register for one of the six statewide trainings that will provide an overview of the new Colorado 811 One Call/Subsurface Utility Law (effective Aug. 8, 2018) and what it means for design, construction and utility companies that are implementing requirements of the law into their projects.

The regional, half-day trainings will be focused toward design professionals with an emphasis on the American Society of Civil Engineers Standard Guidelines for the Collection & Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Data (ASCE 38-02), which is referenced in the new law. These trainings are for agency engineers, consulting engineers and land surveyors, utility engineers, and data keepers.

The Denver-area, all-day training will include both design and construction focuses. This training is for agency engineers, consulting engineers and land surveyors, utility engineers, data keepers, and contractors. This event is being planned also in cooperation with Colorado Contractors Association.

At all trainings, engineers from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will present how they are implementing the law’s new requirements.
