St. Louis project in running for two national awards
Your vote is needed
Twelve winning transportation projects from four U.S. regional competitions will battle it out in this year's America's Transportation Awards competition, with two $10,000 cash awards for a charity or transportation-related scholarship of the winners' choosing at stake.

MoDOT's "Improvements for Downtown St. Louis" project, a combined effort with the Illinois Department of Transportation, is competing in the category of "Quality of Life/Community Development" and is up for the national Grand Prize and the People's Choice Award.

An independent panel of transportation experts will select the Grand Prize winner, while the general public will decide the People's Choice Award winner though online voting.
