Garden City - The Ada County Highway District sent four members of our local maintenance team to the 2015 APWA Western Snow and Ice Conference and National Snow Roadeo last week in Loveland, Colorado. Maintenance crews from all over the country came to compete in events with equipment including dump trucks, loaders, and road graders.
ACHD brings home the gold from the annual maintenance “roadeo”
ACHD’s Bobby Amidon won first place and was named the new national champion in the loader competition. He also took 11th place in the grader competition. Matt Christensen and Tanner Weston won 19th place in the truck competition, a team event.
The last time ACHD won gold at the annual maintenance roadeo was in 1996 and 1997 in the loader competition.
