Top Picks in AASHTO Photo Contest Have Geo-engineering Subjects

AASHTO Faces of Transportation 2012 Grand Price Winner - Caldecott Fourth Bore Tunnel Breakthrough by Metropolitan Transportation Commission Photographer Karl Nielsen

Every year, the American Association of Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) has a photo contest called Faces of Transportation. This year’s top winners had a strong geo-engineering theme. A photo of the Caldecott Fourth Bore breakthrough took home the grand prize, and a photo of a Bulldozer Clearing a Landslide on I-73 in Tennessee took home the People’s Choice Award. [Source: AASHTO.
