AASHTO Centennial

AASHTO Centennial Sponsor Recognition Video

​The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), is celebrating its 100th year. Over the past century AASHTO and its member departments of transportation in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, have benefited from the strong partnerships forged in both the public and private sectors. No organization can accomplish great things alone. This video acknowledges the sponsors who are making AASHTO’s National Centennial Celebration possible.​
