Awards will be given in the categories of Innovation, Leadership, Relocation, and Subsurface Utility Engineering. Each category will recognize projects at two funding levels:

Anyone may nominate a highway project or process, or an individual, contractor, or organization involved in a project, that has used Federal-aid funding sources to make an outstanding contribution to transportation within the last 3 years (since January 1, 2002).
