America's Transportation Awards

SH99/Grand Parkway Segment E:

Texas Department of Transportation’s $320 million SH99/Grand Parkway, Segment E project represents the newest section of a planned 185-mile loop around the Houston metro region. Segment E improves system linkage within the existing transportation network and it will mitigate congestion on numerous roadway segments on the state’s “100 most congested” list.

Online voting began Sept. 8, and will continue through Friday, Oct. 24. Individuals are welcome to vote up to 10 times per day for their favorite projects. The award will be presented Nov. 23 at the AASHTO Annual Meeting in Charlotte.

AASHTO Centennial

​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.​
