The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is accepting nominations now for its 2007 Excellence in Utilities Awards Program. The awards will honor highway agencies and contractors in the categories of Innovation, Leadership, Relocation, Project Management, Value Engineering, Incentive for Utility Relocation, and Outstanding Individual Contributors. Projects will be recognized in two funding categories ($100 million or less and greater than $100 million).
Anyone may nominate a highway project or process, or an individual, contractor, or organization involved in a project, that has used Federal-aid funding within the last 3 years (since January 1, 2003).
Entries must be submitted online at www.fhwa.dot.gov/utilities by January 2, 2007. Award winners will be recognized at the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials' Right-of-Way and Utility Conference, to be held April 29-May 3, 2007, in Orlando, Florida.
