The ARTBA Foundation is now accepting nominations for the 2015 “Transportation Development Hall of Fame,” which honors individuals or families from the public and private sectors who have made extraordinary contributions to U.S. transportation development or demonstrated exceptional leadership over their lifetime.

Nominations are considered in two categories. The “Transportation Design & Construction Industry Innovators” category honors the men and women who discovered or created a “game changing” product or process that significantly advanced transportation design, construction and/or safety.  It seeks to honor the original innovator.  The “Transportation Design & Construction Industry Leaders” category recognizes men, women and families who have made significant contributions—beyond just having successful businesses or careers—that have notably helped advance the interests and image of the transportation design, construction and safety industry.

Anyone can nominate a candidate, and ARTBA membership is not required.  Individuals can be living or inducted to the Hall posthumously.  The selection process is extremely competitive, and only a very limited number of individuals will be inducted.

A committee of judges that includes industry journalists will select the inductees.  Two-thirds of the committee must vote in favor of a nominee’s induction.

The class of 2014 and 2015 will be inducted at a special April 13 dinner during the ARTBA Federal Issues Program held in Washington, D.C.

Nominations must be submitted online by January 30. Contact ARTBA’s Program Manager Kashae Williams with questions.
