2008 Excellence in Highway Design Biennial Awards

The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Excellence in Highway Design Biennial Awards Program recognizes outstanding highway transportation, highlighting the best in highway design. The purpose of the Awards is to recognize the superior efforts and achievements of public agencies and private organizations in designing highway facilities that enhance safety and mobility while being sensitive to the human and natural environment and contributing to a more pleasing transportation experience. The 2008 Award winners include outstanding examples of highways, bridges, roadside facilities, and other improvements that demonstrate what can be done when designers use their creativity to find context sensitive solutions to move traffic along a facility that is aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly, as well as safe and efficient.

More than 100 entries were received this year and covered a wide range of highway and highway-related projects. All of the entries represented the best in highway design. Each category of nominations was assigned to a panel of judges who performed the challenging task of selecting the best of the best. This program would not be possible without the support of these dedicated professionals who contributed their time, unique talents, and expertise to this task.

Congratulations to the winners and all who participated in the 2008 Excellence in Highway Design Biennial Awards Program.
