The National Operations Center of Excellence (NOCoE) – a partnership of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, the Institute for Transportation Engineers, and ITS America, with support from the Federal Highway Administration – is officially accepting submissions for its 2021 Transportation Systems Management and Operations or TSMO Awards competition.
For the 2021 contest, NOCoE is accepting 1,200 word submissions through December 4 in four categories: Best TSMO Project; Agency Improvement; Work Zones Using TSMO; and Project Selection and Prioritization for TSMO.
NOCoE added that its TSMO Awards program is open to cities, counties, state DOTs, metropolitan planning organizations or MPOS, and private sector organizations.
Contest entrants should highlight a successful TSMO project undertaken in the last five years that provided a clear benefit to the traveling public. Judges will select winners for each of the four categories, with an overall TSMO winner selected from the four category victors.
For the 2020 competition, the Georgia Department of Transportation took home overall winner honors for its Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures project.
