Six projects from four northeastern state departments of transportation received top honors in the second of four regional America’s Transportation Awards competitions.

Sponsored by AASHTO, AAA, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the 12th annual America’s Transportation Awards competition is comprised of three categories.

The first is “Quality of Life/Community Development,” which recognizes projects that provide significant benefits to the communities in which they are located, especially in the form of economic growth and the well-being of citizens.

The second is “Best Use of Technology & Innovation,” which recognizes new technology and/or creative solutions implemented by a state DOT.

The final category is “Operations Excellence,” which recognizes projects that deliver a more reliable, well-functioning, and/or safer transportation system through operational solutions.

Project categories are also designated by size: small (projects costing less than $25 million), medium (projects that cost between $25 million and $200 million), and large (projects costing more than $200 million).

The winners from the Northeast Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (NASTO) regional competition are:

The three highest-scoring projects from each regional competition earn a place on a “Top 12” list of projects which then compete for the Grand Prize – selected by an independent panel of industry judges – and the People’s Choice Award, chosen by the general public through online voting.

The top two winners also receive $10,000 cash awards, to be donated to a charity or scholarship of the state DOT’s choosing.

The Top 12 projects will be announced on Aug. 23, when online voting for the People’s Choice Award will begin. The winners of those two top awards will be announced Oct. 7 at the AASHTO Annual Meeting in St. Louis, MO.
