MassDOT's Wellesley Heavy Lift Rapid Bridge Replacement project, left, received honors in the "Ahead of Schedule" category. The 2011 Medford "93Fast14" project, below, replaced 14 I-93 bridges in 10 weekends and received honors in the Best Use of Innovation category. Both projects moved forward as part of the Patrick-Murray Administration's Accelerated Bridge Program to repair structurally-deficient bridges across the Commonwealth.
The America’s Transportation Awards were created to celebrate transportation improvements delivered by state departments of transportation “Ahead of Schedule", “Under Budget”, and with “Best Use of Innovation.”
The awards are sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), AAA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
As regional winners, the projects will be considered for inclusion in the “Top Ten” projects competition. The “Top Ten” will be announced in September, and these projects will then compete for the Grand Prize and the People’s Choice Awards. The Grand Prize winner is selected by a panel of transportation experts, and the People’s Choice Award is chosen online by the voting public.
