National Roadway Safety Award Applications Sought
The National Roadway Safety Awards are a biennial competition sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Roadway Safety Foundation (RSF) to recognize roadway safety achievements that move the United States toward zero deaths. Applications for the 2013 awards are currently being solicited and will be accepted until March 31, 2013.
Awards are presented in three categories:
- Infrastructure Improvements are physical improvements to the roadway or roadside that improve safety, such as: safety devices; engineered design improvements; obstacle removal, relocation, or physical upgrades; intersection improvements; and signage and pavement markings.
- Operational Improvements are non-physical improvements that contribute to roadway safety, including: innovative channelization; weather safety operations; ITS-based safety programs; multidisciplinary activities such as road safety audits; and road design and striping efforts aimed at reducing or minimizing the severity of crashes caused by speeding, distractions, and other offenses.
Applications will be judged on effectiveness, innovation, and efficient use of resources and must include demonstrated evidence of datasupported results.
