In 2010, the ARTBA Transportation Development Foundation (ARTBA-TDF) created a “Hall of Fame” to honor individuals or families from the public and private sectors who have made extraordinary contributions to U.S. transportation development over their lifetime and demonstrated exceptional leadership.

“The transportation design and construction industry is full of talented, and often daring, men and women who helped build an infrastructure network that dramatically improved the economic, cultural and social fabric of America,” says ARTBA-TDF Chairman Leo Vecellio, the chairman and chief executive officer of The Vecellio Group, headquartered in West Palm Beach, Fla. “The Hall is our way of giving these individuals the recognition they deserve and sharing their stories with the general public and elected officials so they better understand the importance of strong transportation investment.”

Nominations are for the TDF Hall of Fame are considered two categories:

  • Transportation Design & Construction Industry Innovators: This category honors the men and women who discovered or created a “game changing” product or process that significantly advanced transportation design, construction and/or safety. It seeks to honor the original innovator.
  • Transportation Design & Construction Industry Leaders (Individuals or Families): This category honors men, women and families who have made significant contributions—beyond just having successful businesses or careers—that have notably helped advance the interests and image of the transportation design, construction and safety industry.

Submit your nomination today. The 2017 Deadline is Sept. 15.
