Rhode Island T2 Center Director Jeff Cathcart was recently the guest on the FHWA's LTAP/TTAP audio
newsletter, "The Interchange." Jeff discussed how equipment and materials are shared between the
municipalities and RIDOT in an effort to streamline costs and create more efficient operations.
As budgets have become tighter, Jeff explained, sharing resources was deemed as a smart
solution. To determine which resources departments needed and which resources departments
were willing and able to share, a series of roundtable discussions were held. The interview is
about 20 minutes long.
