The I-4 Ultimate website (I4Ultimate.com) was honored in September at the annual American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Transcomm Skills Awards.
The contest, conducted by the AASHTO Subcommittee on Transportation Communication, is the premier communications competition in the transportation industry, and the awards have become a standard of excellence among state departments of transportation. According to the AASHTO Subcommittee on Transportation Communication’s website, the Transcomm Skills Award winners demonstrate the very best examples of innovation, planning, production, execution, and evaluation of results and budget.
The I-4 Ultimate website features a robust content management system with a news scroll on the home page as well as multimedia content for the public and news media. More than 10,000 individuals receive an I-4 Ultimate monthly newsletter and weekly construction alerts by signing up through the website. Other tools on the I-4 Ultimate website include information from Florida’s 511 Traveler Information System, recommended alternate routes and content available for sharing on social media.
“We are honored to have been selected by our peers across the country for this award,” said Loreen Bobo, P.E., I-4 Ultimate Construction Program Manager. “The I-4 Ultimate website is part of a much broader effort on our part to engage the community and transparently share information about Central Florida’s largest infrastructure project.”
