Deadline Reminder: Submit Outstanding Local Streets and Roads Project Awards Program Nominations by Friday, Jan. 30

January 27, 2015
The deadline for cities and counties to submit a nomination for the 2015 Outstanding Local Streets and Roads Project Awards is fast approaching.
 
Sponsored by the League of California Cities, California State Association of Counties (CSAC), and County Engineers Association of California (CEAC), the Awards Program recognizes and raises awareness of the exceptional achievements made by California’s cities and counties to preserve and protect the public's investment in the local streets and roads system.
 
Nearly every trip — whether by car, bus, bike or foot — begins and ends on a local street or road. The local system is critical for the safety and mobility of the traveling public, emergency responders, law enforcement, the economy, and multimodal needs such as bicycles and buses. 

The Awards Program highlights cities and counties that are employing projects, programs, practices, and innovative technologies and materials to achieve safety, preservation, and sustainability goals for the statewide local streets and roads system.
 
New Awards Categories for 2015

This year, applicants can nominate projects in three specific categories that aid in the comprehensive improvement of the local network:
  • Efficient and Sustainable Road and Bridge Preservation, Maintenance and Construction and Reconstruction Projects;
  • Complete Streets and Multi-Modal Mobility Projects; and
  • Safety or Intelligent Transportation System Projects. 
Nominations are due no later than Friday, Jan. 30 and must be submitted online. Contact Meghan McKelvey for questions about the program.
