The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) won five excellence awards from the Public Relations Society of America Maryland Chapter (PRSA Maryland) for campaigns urging safe driving and informing Marylanders about ongoing highway projects.

The categories include online video, social media, website and newspaper columns for the annual “Best in Maryland” awards competition. The winners were announced during a virtual ceremony last week.

“Our team is committed to getting the word out about important safety messages, such as moving over for incident response vehicles operating on our roadways, and also keeping our customers updated about the hundreds of ongoing construction projects underway across the State,” said MDOT SHA Administrator Tim Smith. “We will continue utilizing innovative ways to communicate with the public.”
