The National Roadway Safety Awards are back in 2023! Thanks to our continued partnership with the Federal Highway Administration Office of Safety, we'll once again be honoring public agencies that have saved lives on our nation's roads. More than ever before, we are grateful for the opportunity to recognize the lifesaving achievements of agencies and departments that have worked tirelessly during these challenging times.
About the Awards
The National Roadway Safety Awards program honors agencies and organizations in the transportation community that have made verifiable and significant strides toward improving the safety of our nation’s highways through infrastructure improvements, operational improvements or program planning, development and evaluation. Every two years, this prestigious awards program examines the “best of the best” using effectiveness, innovation, and efficient use of resources as criteria in determining which projects will receive this coveted award. Co-sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration and Roadway Safety Foundation, this program has garnered winning entrants well-deserved top industry honors for more than 20 years.
