The Road Information Program (TRIP), a national nonprofit transportation research group, has named Lois Ann “L.A.” Glasgow its new chairman. She plans to help guide the Washington, D.C.-based group to research, evaluate, and distribute economic and technical data on highway transportation issues.

“TRIP is the only organization dedicated solely to furnishing the media and the public with the facts about America's road and bridge funding needs and conditions,” Glasgow said. “All motorists and businesses benefit from good roads and TRIP’s grassroots efforts help educate the public about the importance of highway improvements to our economy, mobility and traffic safety.”

Glasgow, a member of the TRIP board since 1999, is the treasurer and director of Glasgow, Inc., a heavy and highway contractor and materials producer located in Glenside, PA.

She’s spent nearly 30 years working in the construction industry, serving as Glasgow’s corporate equal employment opportunity officer and safety coordinator, creating and implementing all of her company’s corporate policies, hazard communications and drug and alcohol abuse programs.
