U.S. Transportation Secretary Rodney E. Slater today announced that the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will begin accepting entries for the biennial Environmental Excellence Awards Program. The competition recognizes the nation’s best examples of projects or processes that fulfill transportation objectives while protecting and enhancing the environment.

"President Clinton is committed to protecting the environment, and the department makes every effort to protect and enhance communities and the natural environment affected by transportation," Secretary Slater said. "These awards will tell how industry, too, supports this goal."

Anyone may nominate a project, process, person, or group that has used FHWA funding sources to make an outstanding contribution to transportation and the environment. The projects must have been completed after Jan. 1, 1992.

"This competition is an opportunity for us to thank our partners who work so diligently to help us meet the challenge of protecting and enhancing the environment while keeping America moving," FHWA Administrator Kenneth R. Wykle said. "The outstanding work being done in this area truly illustrates the industry’s commitment to environmental excellence."

Entries must be submitted by Aug. 15, 1998, to the division administrator at the FHWA Division Office in the state in which entries are located.

Additional information on the awards program and brochures describing it are available from Pat Cazenas at (202) 366-4085.
