AASHTO Picks Top 10 Transportation Projects

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials has selected finalists in its 2009 America's Transportation Awards competition. Projects range from lane-widening in Delaware to HOT lanes in Miami.

From the press release:

"A panel of judges evaluated 50 highway projects from 33 states in three categories: "On Time," "On Budget," and "Innovative Management." Twenty-two winning projects were selected during four regional competitions. The top ten projects scored the highest number overall points during the judging."

"'These projects show that states are being accountable for every dollar they receive from the taxpayers. They are using the smartest technology in their projects, and they are investing in their communities by reducing congestion, protecting the environment, and enhancing safety. In these tough economic times, the value of rapid and efficient highway construction gets magnified even more,' said John Horsley, AASHTO executive director."
