MoDOT’s eco-friendly approach to construction
The low water crossing projects have won two awards: the 2009 Practical Design Awards for Excellence, Transportation Engineers Association of Missouri, and a 2010 Environmental Excellence Award from the Federal Highway Administration.
The process change mentioned above is just one example of many innovative solutions MoDOT has implemented to meet today’s transportation challenges in a more efficient, sustainable and cost effective way. This type of innovation is one of several identified in the Federal Highway Administration’s “Every Day Counts” initiative, which aims to help Department’s of Transportation shorten project delivery time, enhance roadway safety and improve environmental sustainability.
