What’s better than helping a client win a major national award? Helping a client win TWO major national awards!
CIG client the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) took home two national awards for excellence in transportation communications during this year’s TransComm Annual Meeting – a subcommittee of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).
One was the coveted Excel Award, the highest possible award at TransComm, for CDOT’s The Cannabis Conversation — a multi-faceted campaign that used several public relations strategies to drive public engagement, allowing CDOT to listen and learn from the community regarding perceptions of and solutions to marijuana-impaired driving.
CDOT’s Flood Recovery Office also took home an award for its exceptional public involvement and outreach on the US 34 Permanent Repairs Project – another CIG-supported project that was highly collaborative and unique in how it approached stakeholder communications and traffic management on a challenging corridor damaged by the 2013 floods.
Cheers to CDOT and these amazing projects, as well as all the partners that worked together to make them possible!
