-> CALL FOR NOMINATIONS - 2017 ENVIRONMENTAL EXCELLENCE AWARDS, FHWA
Since the program started in 1995, these biennial awards for Environmental Excellence have recognized partners, projects and processes that use Federal Highway Administration funding sources to go beyond environmental compliance and achieve environmental excellence. We accept nominations for any project, process, group or individuals involved in a project or process that has used Federal Highway Administration funding sources to make an outstanding contribution that goes beyond the traditional transportation projects and encourages environmental stewardship and partnerships to achieve a truly multi-faceted, environmentally sensitive transportation solution.

Neither pedestrian and bicycle projects nor trail projects are restricted to the "Nonmotorized and Multimodal Transportation" category. If you have a good pedestrian, bicycle, or trail project that also qualifies under other categories, you can also submit it under other categories.
