Transportation Secretary Gene Conti gets national transportation award

North Carolina Transportation Secretary Gene Conti has been honored with a national award for outstanding contributions to highway engineering.

Conti was presented the Thomas H. MacDonald Memorial Award, the highest designation of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, during the group's annual meeting in Pittsburgh earlier this week.

According to AASHTO – which represents state departments of transportation in every state, D.C. and Puerto Rico – Conti has demonstrated a personal commitment to serving as a transportation advocate and has worked tirelessly to advance transportation on the federal, state and local levels during his years in public service.

The award was established in 1957 to honor the former chief of the federal Bureau of Public Roads and is given to an individual that has “rendered continuous outstanding service over an extended period of time or has made some exceptional contribution to the art and science of highway engineering.”
