TrANS (Transportation Alliance for New Solutions) is a cost-effective program that helps to fulfill entry-level laborer positions for construction contractors. It is a collaborative effort combining the strengths of industry and labor, community-based organizations, government and the contractors of Wisconsin.

This public-private model for collaboration successfully prepares Wisconsin’s untapped workforce with the skills needed to contribute to the transportation construction industry as laborers and apprentices. This untapped workforce that TrANS prepares to enter the construction industry involves those who have been underrepresented historically in the industry, including, but not limited to, women and minorities.

In conjunction with Distracted Driving Awareness Month, WisDOT's Intertribal Task Force recently unveiled a 30-second public service video created in partnership with students at Indian Community School of Milwaukee. This video and other educational tools will be used throughout April to help parents, students and all drivers better understand the dangers of distracted driving.
A safe driving public service announcement developed by students participating in the National Summer Transportation Institute Program through the College of Menominee Nation and Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College in Wisconsin.
