Awards: "Project of the Year" 2007-08

2007-08 Awards
ITS Midwest and ITS Mid-America merged to create a four-state chapter in 2007. With the merger the Annual Meeting was moved from Spring to Fall. To accommodate this change, the merged ITS Midwest has combined the 2007 and 2008 Project of the Year Award. ITS Midwest announced the 2007-08 winners at our 2008 Annual Meeting, October 30-31, in Columbus, OH. Once again, it was another tough decision in making our new Project of the Year Awards.

  • The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet was honored for its Safe Assistance for Freeway Emergencies (SAFE) Patrol project.
