Seven highway safety projects from five state transportation departments have received 2019 National Roadway Safety Awards.

The Florida and Virginia DOTs each received two awards in the “program planning, development, and education” category. Missouri, Arizona, and South Dakota DOTs each received awards for “infrastructure and operational improvements.”

Garfield County in Washington state received an honorable mention for its roadway safety program.

The biennial competition is sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Roadway Safety Foundation (RSF) to “recognize roadway safety achievements that move the United States towards zero deaths and serious injuries on our nation’s roadways.” The competition acknowledges successful engineering solutions that agencies have integrated into their roadway safety programs.
