National Roadway Safety 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 since 2001.
