PennDOT was named as one of the Top 12 projects nationwide in the America's Transportation Awards competition for our PennDOT Connects transportation planning initiative. PennDOT Connects engages community stakeholders, planning organizations, and local governments to help ensure that community needs are understood at each phase of a transportation project's planning process.
PennDOT Connects was nominated in the Quality of Life/Community Development category and is competing for the national Grand Prize and the People's Choice Award.
Sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, (AASHTO), AAA, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the competition evaluates projects in three categories: Quality of Life/Community Development; Best Use of Technology & Innovation; and Operations Excellence.
An independent panel of transportation industry experts will select the Grand Prize winner, while the public will decide the People's Choice Award winner through online voting that has begun and ends at 11:59 p.m. eastern time on Sunday, Oct. 6.
Cast your vote online. Individuals can cast no more than one vote per day, but you can vote every day.
