FHWA Excellence in Right-of-Way Awards

The 2014 Excellence in Right of Way Awards will recognize outstanding innovations that enhance the right-of-way professionals' ability to meet the challenges associated with acquiring real property for a Federal-aid project. One award will be presented in each of the five categories listed below at the FHWA/AASHTO Right-of-Way and Utilities Subcommittee meeting on April 27-30, 2014, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

WHAT is the FHWA Excellence in Right-Of-Way Awards Program?

This biennial awards program was developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to honor those that excel in streamlining or improving the real property acquisition process while ensuring that the rights of property owners and tenants are protected. The awards recognize outstanding innovations that enhance the right-of-way professional's ability to meet the challenges associated with acquiring real property for a Federal-aid project. The award categories include the following:

  1. Innovation
  2. Leadership
  3. Stewardship
  4. Streamlining and Integration
  5. Peer of the Year

Our goal is to spotlight and share great ideas from around the country that will benefit the right-of-way community and the public. An independent panel of judges with diverse backgrounds will select winning entries.

WHO is eligible to enter?

We accept nominations for any project, process, person, contractor, group, or individuals involved in a project or process that has used Federal Highway Administration funding sources to make an outstanding contribution to transportation. Anyone (public or private industry) can submit a nomination.

WHERE will the awards be presented?

FHWA will honor and award plaques to the 2014 Excellence in Right of Way Award winners at the 2014 AASHTO Subcommittee on Right-of-Way and Utilities annual meeting on April 27-30, 2014, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
