2017 ITSPA “Best of ITSPA” Awards

The first award will recognize an individual (ITSPA Person of the Year) that demonstrates devotion, excellence, and leadership in advancing ITS in Pennsylvania. The second award (ITSPA Project of the Year) will recognize a project that demonstrates innovation, coordination, and measurable results.
