2019 Roadway Safety Awards Applications Due May 31

The National Roadway Safety Awards program is a biennial competition sponsored by the FHWA and the foundation to recognize roadway safety achievements that move the United States toward zero deaths and serious injuries on the nation's roads.

The Roadway Safety Foundation and the Federal Highway Administration are accepting applications for the 2019 National Roadway Safety Awards, but time is short: Submissions are due at midnight Eastern time May 31.

Winners will be announced at a Capitol Hill ceremony this fall.

The National Roadway Safety Awards program is a biennial competition sponsored by the FHWA and the foundation to recognize roadway safety achievements that move the United States toward zero deaths and serious injuries on the nation's roads. The competition acknowledges successful engineering solutions that agencies have integrated into their roadway safety programs. Awards are given in two categories: Infrastructure and Operational Improvements; and Program Planning, Development, and Evaluation.

The sponsoring organizations say selected projects are included in a noteworthy practices guide so they can be replicated nationwide.

Applicants are encouraged to nominate projects or programs that exemplify innovative and effective safety activities and maximize the cost effectiveness of federal, state, local, and/or private sector funds.

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
