We still need your votes for the America’s Transportation Award

A year ago a landslide destroyed a stretch of SR 410 and now our work to reopen the roadway is being recognized nationally! The Nile Valley Landslide project is one of ten transportation projects selected by AASHTO (American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials) as a finalist for this year’s Best Transportation Project in the U.S.

What we need from you is to continue to vote so we can win the “People’s choice Award.” This award is solely based on the number of votes we receive. Currently, we are one of the top two projects. In order to win $10,000 to give to the local community who was incredibly impacted by the landslide, we need you to head over to the America’s Transportation Award website and cast your vote. Feel free to cast your vote every day as many times as you want. Help us win this thing!

While it maybe allowed, either by intent or by error, is really an ethical position for WSDOT to invite people to vote as often and as many times as they can?

This emergency work was clearly a success that everyone involved from WSDOT, the county, local agencies and the residents can take pride however stuffing a ballot box to recieve "formal" kudoes seems a bit insecure on the agencies part.

Just one guys opinion.

I'd just like to point out that it's more than fomal kudos. There is a $10,000 prize attached for the winner that will go back into the Nile Valley area. A small token to offset the full impacts, but considering voting was free and SO easy - worth it.
