The National Roadway Safety Awards program honors agencies and organizations in the transportation community that have made verifiable and significant strides toward improving the safety of our nation’s highways through infrastructure improvements, operational improvements or program planning, development and evaluation.

Every two years, this prestigious awards program examines the “best of the best” using effectiveness, innovation, and efficient use of resources as criteria in determining which projects will receive this coveted award. Co-sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration and Roadway Safety Foundation, this program has garnered winning entrants well-deserved top industry honors for more than two decades.

The competition acknowledges successful engineering solutions that agencies have integrated into their roadway safety programs. Selected projects are included in a noteworthy practices guide so they can be replicated nationwide.  Award winners are also honored at a ceremony in the fall on Capitol Hill.  Know of a groundbreaking, innovative road safety project?


Interested public agencies have until May 31, 2019 to submit their projects for consideration.
