Started in 2005, the ITS Midwest Awards Program highlights the major accomplishments our public and private sector members have made over the past year.

The 2018 ITS Midwest “Project of the Year” award for the Most Outstanding ITS Project had a record of eleven nominations this year. It was another tough decision to select one for the recognition. Finally, the ITS Midwest “Project of the Year” award recognized a project in Illinois: CDOT’s Chicago Smart Mobility (CSM) Project Phase I. The Award was presented to CDOT at the 2018 Annual Meeting of ITS Midwest. Congratulations!
CDOT needed an ATMS to implement active traffic management in Chicago. The City had multiple antiquated standalone systems, and the departments operated independently. Specific work involved: The CSM project integrated an unprecedented number of diverse systems together into one platform.

Each year one or more ITS projects are chosen to receive the ITS Midwest Project of the Year Award.
