In October 2011 MassDOT's Accelerated Bridge Program received AASHTO’s Francis B. Francois Award for Innovation.  The award winner each year is a state transportation department that has implemented an outstanding innovative program. 

Medford 93Fast14, Final Bridge Replacement, Demolition, August 12, 2011AASHTO cited as an example of innovation MassDOT’s groundbreaking “93Fast14” project that replaced 14 bridges on Interstate 93 in Medford during 10 weekends in June, July, and August.  The project used prefabricated bridge sections and completed bridge replacements between Friday evening and Monday morning each weekend to minimize traffic disruption.

By accepting the award, MassDOT received a $10,000 graduate fellowship for a state university student or students pursuing a transportation-related degree.  

After careful consideration, MassDOT has decided to award graduate fellowships of $1,000 to ten successful applicants.  Fellowship winners will receive a certificate presented at a MassDOT hosted event along with their financial award.

Fellowship candidates must be currently enrolled in graduate studies or have a letter of acceptance to a graduate program at a state university.  Application and requirements are posted on the MassDOT website.  The application deadline is April 30, 2012.
