CT Creative Solutions Award Program

The Connecticut Creative Solutions Award Program was developed by the Connecticut Training and Technical Assistance Center to recognize the initiative and innovative thinking of public agency transportation staff in the development of tools, equipment modifications, and processes that increase safety, reduce cost, improve efficiency, and improve the quality of transportation.

Each year our winners are added to our “Connecticut Creative Solutions” guide. We hope sharing these innovations will help you identify solutions to challenges you are facing in your agency. To browse through our guide, click on the link: CT Creative Solutions Award Guide.
