The US 36 Express Lanes project has won the grand prize for projects that use technology and innovation to move traffic safely and more reliably. The award was received under the Best Use of Technology and Innovation, Large Project category (projects costing more than US$200 million) and received a US$10,000 cheque for charity or transportation-related scholarship of the winner’s choosing.

The American Associate of State Highway and Transportation Officials, known as AASHTO, announced the winners at its annual meeting in Phoenix on September 27, 2017. AASHTO represents State Departments of Transportation in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

The 2017 competition attracted a record 92 project nominations from state transportation departments in 39 states and the District of Columbia. An independent panel of industry judges selected the Grand Prize winner.

“We are thrilled to receive national recognition for the US 36 Express Lanes project which has greatly improved trip time reliability and the daily lives of commuters in the metro area,” said Shailen Bhatt, CDOT executive director. “I am proud of our team and would like to thank all the communities and partners involved in delivering this project that improves the efficiency and safety of our transportation system.”
