The 2022 NOCoE TSMO Awards are now open for submissions. This year's awards feature four categories:
Best TSMO Project
Digital Infrastructure and Electrification for TSMO
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The TSMO Awards celebrate the benefits of TSMO in leveraging existing infrastructure and while also capturing the best practices of TSMO strategies that preserve capacity and improve the security, safety, and reliability of the transportation system.
The TSMO Awards are open to cities, counties, MPOs (RPO, COG), state DOTs and private sector organizations. Winners in each of the four categories will have highlighted a successful TSMO project undertaken in the last five years that provided a clear benefit to the traveling public.
This year, submissions will be asked to identify the benefits of projects to the user or to the agency. Additionally, photos, videos, and other visuals will be included as part of the award evaluation process.
As with previous years, an Overall Winner will be announced from the four category winners. An individual will also be identified as 2022 TSMO Champion for their efforts in advancing TSMO both in their organization and within the industry at large.
As we open submissions for next year's awards, we're also celebrating this year's Overall Winner, to be announced October 18 at 2pm ET during a YouTube Live ceremony.
This event, hosted by Jim Tymon, Executive Director, AASHTO and Scott Marler, Director, Iowa DOT, will both announce the winner of Overall TSMO Award, chosen from the four 2021 category winners, and will also include a conversation with the 2021 TSMO Champion, to be announced on October 18.
