A team from MCDOT’s Division of Traffic Engineering and Operations (DTEO) was recognized by County Executive Ike Leggett for its participation in the Rewarding Excellence Bonus Incentive Award Program that is designed to encourage and promote new, innovative ideas, concepts and strategies for the cost-effective delivery of County services and products. Front-line employees find cost savings and half of the first year’s savings are distributed to them.

DTEO found a way to recover costs incurred in replacing traffic signal equipment damaged by traffic crashes, contractors, utilities, construction projects or in other ways by billing the responsible parties. It is estimated that about $9,400 a year in County costs will be recouped through the new DTEO process.
