Berkshire county highway superintendents assocation




The Berkshire County District 1 Highway Superintendents Association was organized in 1979 by a group of Highway Superintendents and vendors to help other Superintendents become more versed in highway matters.

When the Association was formed, District 1 consisted of 40 Cities and Towns. In 1996 the State re-structured the Districts and we grew to 56 cities and Towns that are in Berkshire, Franklin, Hampshire, and Hamden Counties. We feel there is a wealth of knowledge and experience that can be shared within the Association.

There are many benefits that the Association offers to Highway Departments in District 1:

  • Training / Meetings; Valuable knowledge and training is shared at our meetings.

  • State Aid; Provide education,  assistance and updates with the required paperwork and forms for the Chapter 90 program, Strap and PWED Grant programs.

  • Lobbying; For the good of all Cities and Towns for roadwork funds.

  • Scholarships; Active highway members; son/ daughter or grandson/ granddaughter are eligible for scholarships.

  • Driver Skills and Training (aka Snowplow Roadeo); Partnering with Baystate Roads Program (LTAP)we offer an annual Driver training every July with the top 2 teams going on to the State finals sponsored by the Mass Highway Association.

  • Product information; The latest products and services available and their applications.

  • Annual Equipment Show; Free tickets to active Highway Departments and their Towns, Selectboards, Mayors, Finance Committees.

  • Website; Access Town contacts, Industry contacts, Legislative contacts, Legislative updates, Forms, and Helpful information in one easy place
