Wayne Lupton retired as the Director of Maintenance and Operations from Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) in 2006 after 32 years. During his tenure with CDOT, he was responsible for the Maintenance Level of Service program, Anti-icing & De-icing technologies, creating snow removal related policies, avalanche mitigation, equipment management, and the CDOT Training Academy. While Wayne was the Director of Maintenance and Operations he was on many research committees in the snow and ice arena. One of these committees was dedicated to developing specifications for an automated bridge spray system. This directly resulted in Wayne’s involvement with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Transportation Research Board (TRB), American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and the Highway Innovative Technology Evaluation Center (HITEC) in all areas of winter highway maintenance. Wayne was the Lead State representative to the FHWA responsible for training state Departments of Transportation in anti-icing and the use of Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS). He later became the AASHTO task force chair for the Snow & Ice sub-committee. While working with these groups Wayne helped to develop specifications for Fixed Automatic Spray Technology (FAST) systems and set on the HITEC evaluation panel for the Freeze Free systems. Wayne has worked for EnviroTech Services ESI Spray™ division since Feb. 2007.
