The Missouri Department of Transportation has won top honors in the Mid America Regional “America’s Transportation Awards” competition for two projects that were completed ahead of schedule and under budget.
Chief Engineer Dave Nichols received the awards at the annual meeting of the Mid America Association of State Transportation Officials. MoDOT’s winning entries were the I-29/35 kcICON project in Kansas City and the I-270 Dorsett-Page Project in suburban St. Louis.
Now in its fifth year, the America’s Transportation Awards competition – sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, AAA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce – recognizes the very best of America’s transportation projects in three main categories: Ahead of Schedule, Under Budget and Best Use of Innovation. The categories are then split up by size: small (less than $25 million), medium (between $25 million and $199 million) and large ($200 million and more).
