ARTBA Foundation Launches Awards to Honor Transportation Innovation

The American Road & Transportation Builders Association Transportation Development Foundation (ARTBA-TDF) is launching a new awards program to promote and recognize innovations that make the U.S. transportation infrastructure network the best it can be in serving those who pay for it, use it and rely on it.

The “TransOvation Awards” honor innovative transportation infrastructure-related products, services, technologies and techniques introduced over the past five years that can be documented to provide a high return-on-investment by:

  • Improving transportation safety;
  • Saving transportation users and taxpayers time and/or money; or
  • Making our transportation infrastructure more environmentally sustainable.

The awards will be presented July 26 at a black-tie optional dinner held in conjunction with ARTBA’s “TransOvation Workshop” at the Lansdowne Resort & Conference Center in Leesburg, Virginia. 

Nomination forms, which are available at, are due by June 1. Contact Holly Bolton, ARTBA’s Awards & Scholarship Program Manager, at with questions. ARTBA membership is not required, and self nominations are encouraged. 

The ARTBA Foundation was established in 1985 as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt entity to “promote research, education and public awareness.”  It supports an array of initiatives, including educational scholarships, awards, executive education seminars, roadway work zone safety and training programs, special economic reports and a national exhibition on transportation.
