Vote for America’s best transportation project of 2010

Posted by Steve Anderson on Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

Ten finalists, announced today by the American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO), AAA, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, are competing for the 2010 America’s Transportation Awards.  The National Transportation Award will be decided by a panel of judges, but the People’s Choice Award will be decided by popular vote.  Online voting starts today and ends October 18th, 2010.

Some projects on the ballot:

Missouri Department of Transportation The I-64 St. Louis Project involved limited funds, an expedited construction schedule, and a coordinated public outreach campaign to allay public concern and minimize the potential impact on motorists. In December 2009, I-64 reopened to traffic nearly one month early and $11 million under budget.

New York State Department of Transportation: The US Route 62 Hamburg Project  addressed severe safety, capacity, and infrastructure deficiencies. After just six months of operation, accidents have dramatically reduced in the project corridor and congestion has been minimized.

Washington State Department of Transportation The Nile Valley Landslide Prevention Project used innovative management to respond to a massive landslide that destroyed a half-mile of State Route 410 in October 11, 2009. The project involved re-channels a river away from the landslide, monitor for additional landslides, and the design and construct of a 4,000-foot detour road that could withstand anticipated winter floods. WSDOT and an emergency contractor worked 14 hours a day, seven days a week to construct a new river channel and detour.

    I-64 Project
    closing the highway and reopening as they were completed should be a model for future project
