America's Transportation Awards

Deadline Extended for America’s Transportation Awards Nominations

To better accommodate its members, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials has extended the deadline for nominations in the 2014 America’s Transportation Awards competition. Nominations are now due by Friday, April 18.

The competition recognizes the best transportation projects across the nation each year administered by state transportation departments. The competition this year will showcase projects that finish under budget, those that feature exceptional uses of innovation, and projects that improve the quality of life and development of communities (a new category for the 2014 competition).

Nation at a Crossroads

The "Nation at a Crossroads" is a web-based infographic, mobile app and printed brochure that provides a national perspective on surface transportation investments. It also provides state-level information to help tell the story of how federal funding affects transportation investment priorities.

The information included in the infographic was collected from AASHTO members as well as industry sources such as the US Department of Transportation, TRIP, American Public Transportation Association, and the American Society of Civil Engineers.
