Call for Entries: Applications Are Being Accepted for the Road and Bridge Safety Improvement Contest

Friday January 6th, 2017

Did your township complete an outstanding road or bridge project in 2016? If so, you have until March 3 to enter it in the 35th Annual Road and Bridge Safety Improvement Contest.

Sponsored by PSATS, the Pennsylvania Highway Information Association, and the state Department of Transportation, the contest recognizes townships for their extensive contributions of time and effort to making roads and bridges safer for motorists, pedestrians, and other travelers.

Eligible projects include safety improvements initiated and completed in 2016 or ongoing projects begun in 2016. Entries must involve visible improvements, such as guide rail or stop sign installation, road widening and resurfacing, bridge improvements, or clearing brush from a road curve where poor sight distance has resulted in accidents.

Education programs, stricter speed limit enforcement, and drunk driver programs, while contributing to traffic safety, are not eligible for this contest.

Winners will receive their awards at PSATS’ Annual Educational Conference in April and will be the subject of a Township News article.

Entry forms for the contest were mailed to townships and Engineers Association members in December. The completed form must be sent to PennDOT by March 3.
