Nominee: Innovative Management – Small Project
FDOT created this first-of-its-kind contractual arrangement to provide a speedy turnaround on safety improvements. This innovative contracting method allows for safety-enhancement projects to be quickly developed, designed, and built in a timeframe that is often one-tenth of the time required for the normal roadway project process.
The impact of building safety projects more expeditiously is clear: lives are saved thanks to safer highways. Projects pushed out under this method can be completed in weeks or months instead of years.
