TDA Honors the Always Essential Transportation Workers
MADISON, WI – Today, the Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin (TDA) bestowed its highest honor on the men and women across Wisconsin who kept the state “moving” throughout the COVID health emergency.
“This year there was only one choice for the Transportation Service Award – Wisconsin’s essential transportation workers,” explained TDA Executive Director Debby Jackson at the organization’s annual meeting. “Throughout this year, these men and women stayed on the job to operate, build, and maintain Wisconsin’s transportation infrastructure. Because of them, other essential services were provided, and families across the state and around the nation had access to food, medicine, and everyday necessities.”
The Transportation Service Award is presented annually to a person or persons who have significantly advanced the cause of a safe, modern, interconnected transportation system in Wisconsin.
“Transportation and these dedicated workers played a critical role during this challenging year,” Jackson said. “And transportation will play an equally significant role as we support Wisconsin industries and businesses with their recovery and get people back to work.”
This year’s Transportation Service Award, and TDA’s annual meeting, were presented virtually this morning. The video award presentation can be viewed here.
From the buses in Racine to the Port of Green Bay to the rail lines in Superior to the Waukesha County Airport to the roads we use every day, Wisconsin’s transportation network is the key to connecting goods to market and people to jobs. Founded in 1971, the Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin promotes the vitality and safety of the state’s transportation system, including public transit systems, airports, railroads, commercial ports, and roads. TDA’s members include businesses, labor unions, citizen groups, units of government, and individuals.
