Medford 93Fast14, Final Bridge Replacement, Demolition, August 12, 2011MassDOT's 2011 "93Fast14" project in Medford is one of the Top Ten finalists for the 2012 America's Transportation Award by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).

The $98 million 93Fast14 project replaced 14 deteriorated bridges in just 10 weekends and moved forward as part of the Patrick-Murray Administration's Accelerated Bridge Program to repair structurally-deficient bridges across the Commonwealth.

93Fast14 and nine other finalists received the highest number of overall points during four regional contests and were judged in three categories: "Ahead of Schedule", "Under Budget", and "Best Use of Innovation."

The 10 projects now compete for the America's Transportation Awards' Grand Prize, selected by a panel of judges, and the People's Choice Award, which will be decided by popular vote of the general public.

Online voting begins today, Monday, Sept. 10 and will continue through Friday, Oct. 19 at www.AmericasTransportationAward.org.

The two awards will be presented in November at the AASHTO annual meeting. The winners of both the Grand Prize and the People's Choice Award will be awarded $10,000, which must be donated by the state DOTs to a charity or scholarship of their choice.

The America’s Transportation Awards by AASHTO, AAA, and the U.S Chamber of Commerce were created to celebrate transportation improvements delivered by state departments of transportation that are on time, on budget, and innovative.
