Completed a full year ahead of schedule, the bridge from southern Caroline County and northern Dorchester County to Talbot County has been selected as one of 12 finalists for the 2019 America’s Transportation Award hosted by the American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials’ (AASHTO).
“The Dover Bridge project exemplifies our commitment to delivering the best possible customer experience across the state during all stages of project development — from design to construction,” MDOT SHA Administrator Greg Slater said. “Completed a year early, this bridge provided much need relief to two Maryland counties, which for decades were impacted by bridge openings that stalled local traffic and delayed emergency response.
“We are extremely proud of this project that delivered a new bridge to the communities and encourage everyone to vote for this project for the People’s Choice Award. Just go online to AmericasTransportationAwards.org and vote between now and 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 6.”
The winner of this award can earn up to $10,000 in cash prizes that can be donated to charity or a transportation-related scholarship. The winner will be announced on October 8th at the AASHTO annual meeting.
