Road and Bridge Safety Award Program Now Open to First Class Townships and Cities
Each year the Pennsylvania Highway Information Association (PHIA) and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) team with various state organizations to recognize the best road safety or bridge improvement projects undertaken across the state. Eligible projects are those in which most or all of the safety improvements were completed in 2011. The competition recognizes not only major, high-cost projects, but any improvements that have increased public safety. All entries are graded in four categories: Safety, Resource Innovation, Benefits of Improvements, and Cooperation.
Awards have already been presented to 2nd Class Townships and Boroughs. Applications are now open to First Class Townships and Cities and are being jointly sponsored by the PA State Association of Township Commissioners (PSATC) and the PA League of Cities and Municipalities (PLCM).

Entries are being taken until May 23, 2012.
