The 2010 MassDOT Accelerated Bridge Program "heavy lift" Phillipston Bridge Replacement project this week received a regional award in the Innovative Management, Small Project category as part of the 4th annual 2011 America's Transportation Awards competition.
The America’s Transportation Awards were created to celebrate transportation improvements delivered by state departments of transportation “On Time”, “Under Budget”, and with “Innovative Management.”
The awards are sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), AAA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
As a regional winner, the project will be considered for inclusion in the “Top Ten” projects competition. The “Top Ten” will be announced in late August, 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. Both prizes carry a $10,000 cash prize that can be used to start a scholarship fund for transportation professionals, or given to a community charity.
