A number of projects throughout the Northeast in Massachuetts have been recognized with American Transportation Awards from AASHTO, the American Automobile Association, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
“Each of the nominated projects is deserving of an award,” Kirk Steudle, AASHTO president and director of the Michigan Department of Transportation. ” The America’s Transportation Award competition is a great way to highlight those tremendous transportation projects that show just how our state transportation departments are delivering value for those limited transportation dollars. We are proud of the quality of these projects and believe their deserve some attention for their creativity, innovation, and stellar management.”
The competition is now in its 5th year, the America’s Transportation Awards competition–sponsored by AASHTO, AAA, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce-recognizes the very best of America’s transportation projects in categories that recognize Ahead of Schedule, Under Budget, and Best Use of Innovation.
Three states earned awards in the Ahead of Schedule category: the Massachuetts Department of Transportation’s Wellesley Heavy Lift Rapid Bridge, the New Jersey Department of Transportation’s I-78 and Garden State Parkway Interchange 142, and Vermont’s Agency of Transportation for its work to rebound from infrastructure damage from Tropical Storm Irene.
Maryland’s state highway agency earned an Under Budget recognition for its drainage improvement programs.
In the Best Use of Innovation category, Pennsylvania was honored for its ePermitting process, Massachuetts for its I-93 Fast 14, and Maryland for it’s Intercounty Connector project.
The other winners will be announced by those agencies, and a Grand Prize and People’s Choice awards given to projects in a voting process that begins on-line on Sept. 5.
