2017 ENVIRONMENTAL EXCELLENCE AWARDS
OPEN FOR NOMINATIONS!
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is excited to announce the opening of the 2017 Environmental Excellence Awards (EEA) Program. Nominations will be accepted from August 1 – September 15. The biennial EEA Program recognizes outstanding transportation projects, processes, and partners that use FHWA funding sources to go beyond “business as usual” to achieve environmental excellence.
The 2017 EEA Program represents a joint effort among three FHWA offices: the Office of Project Development and Environmental Review, Office of Natural Environment, and Office of Human Environment. The Program features a range of categories under the topic areas of Natural Environment, Human Environment, and Organization and Process Innovation, designed to highlight best practices occurring across the Nation.
EEA nominations will be accepted through September 15, 2016. To submit your nomination and to learn more about the EEA Program, please visit: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/environmental_excellence_awards/.
