Townships: Enter Your Project in the Road and Bridge Safety Contest

Thursday January 9th, 2014

Has your township completed a project to make your roads and bridges safer? If so, you have until March 7 to enter the 32nd Annual Road and Bridge Safety Improvement Contest.

Sponsored by PSATS, the Pennsylvania Highway Information Association, and the state Department of Transportation, the contest recognizes townships for their extensive contributions of time and effort to making roads and bridges safer for motorists.

Eligible projects include safety improvements initiated and completed in 2013 or ongoing projects begun in 2013. Entries must involve such visible improvements as:

  • the installation of guide rails or stop signs
  • road widening and resurfacing
  • bridge improvements
  • clearing brush from a curve to improve sight distance

Education programs, stricter speed limit enforcement, and drunk driver programs, while contributing to traffic safety, are not eligible for this contest.

Entry forms for the contest were mailed to all townships in December. The completed form must be sent to PennDOT by March 7.

Winners will be presented with a plaque or certificate at PSATS’ Annual Educational Conference in April and will be the subject of a Township News article.

For more information or an entry form, call PSATS at (717) 763-0930.
