MoDOT Results is a website and accompanying report addressing Missouri DOT's performance from 2007-2016 across dimensions of accountability, innovation, and efficiency. Both the website and the report incorporate infographics, and other images to portray the agency's performance in non-technical terms, suitable for a general-public audience.
MassDOT's Performance and Accountability Tracker, which reports on the department's performance throughout the fiscal year.
Missouri DOT's Economic Impact Analysis brings together a series of economic impact analyses to communicate the effects of highway projects on the state economy across all assets.
This project won an honorable mention in the 2012 John and Jane Public Competition. From TRB Committee ADA 60: Florida Department of Transportation created the Legislative Briefing Documents in 2010 with the goal of informing Florida’s Legislators about the major transportation investments in their respective districts. The project originally started as a document for just one legislator, but became so popular because of its effectiveness, that an individual and unique Legislative Briefing Document is now made for each of Florida’s 40 Senators and 120 Representatives on an annual basis.
This project was a 2013 John and Jane Competition winner. From TRB Committee ADA 60: The Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area is Canada’s largest urban region and the fifth largest in North America. The region is growing quickly, and the transportation system has not kept pace with population growth. This underinvestment has left local residents grinding out an 82-minute commute on average every day. The next wave of transportation projects requires $34 billion in public investment. To secure funding, Metrolinx needed to build public understanding about benefits and costs, and solicit input concerning transportation fees, tolls, and taxes. Metrolinx teamed up with MASS LBP, a public engagement firm, to develop and implement a public engagement and communications strategy that educated residents and enabled a two-way conversation about transportation projects and funding. The strategy was based on a three-pronged approach that combined a Conversation Kit, Public Roundtable Meetings and an in-depth Residents’ Reference Panel. Together, these efforts effectively communicated the many elements of The Big Move and empowered residents to learn about the need for – and to provide input into – the transformation of transportation across the region.

WSDOT looks at pavement conditions through the eyes of drivers and with cross-section illustrations to show the how pavement can deteriorate throughout during its lifecycle. The infographic in Gray Notebook 56 compares past trends and provides future projections, describing not only how many lane miles and vehicle miles traveled fall into categories ranging from very good to very poor, but what fiscal impacts can be expected at each stage.

Keeping commercial trucks moving on Washington state’s highway is vital to the economy, improves traffic flow and reduces impacts to the environment. Gray Notebook 57 Commercial Vehicle Information Systems and Networks Annual Report explains how the CVISN system achieves all these tasks while saving the trucking industry millions of dollars and tens of thousands of hours each year.
WSDOT’s spiral graphs show the extra time drivers in Washington state spent in traffic due to increased traffic volumes. The graphs allow readers to visualize when and where the most intense delay occurred, and how it differs by direction of travel.

WSDOT’s Corridor Capacity Report’s ‘Dashboard of Indicators’ presents multimodal system performance measures over a five year period, giving a holistic view of the changes in system conditions. Collaboration with transit, planning and other state agencies is critical for achieving a corridor-based customer focused multimodal performance measurement and analysis that leading to a comprehensive story telling that resonates with WSDOT stakeholders. These corridor snapshots act as a regional dashboard on measures like person miles traveled and annual emissions, as well as digging into metrics for every mode.
