RTI observing National Transportation Week

May. 17, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- The Rahall Transportation Institute has been hosting events this week to celebrate National Transportation Week.

The finale includes a Kids' Day at the Park from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 18, at the Ritter Park fountain. There will be prizes and giveaways, along with games such as Frisbee, kickball, relay races, jump rope and wiffleball.

The River Gorge Bridge catwalk design competition also will take place Saturday in Huntington.

National Transportation Week is an opportunity to create greater awareness around and appreciation of the transportation industry. It is also a time to celebrate the transportation professionals who keep our country on the move.

This past week, officials have worked with students from Cabell County engaging in a geocaching activity at Barboursville Park and visiting Meadows and Guyandotte elementary schools.
