Posted on December 29, 2003

Federal Highway (FHWA) Administrator Mary E. Peters was declared "Woman of the Year" by the Women's Transportation Seminar (WTS) for her leadership and dedication to excellence in improving transportation. "Peters has built upon her reputation as a hard driving leader at the FHWA," said Margaret Mullins, President of the Washington, D.C. chapter of the WTS. Peters said she would like to see her agency, the FHWA, make important contributions to America-- to take great strides in protecting lives on its roads, relieving congestion, and completing construction projects while safeguarding the environment. "The presence of women in transportation as leaders and expert staff has helped make transportation better," Peters said. "Women bring an important new perspective to leadership that is good for the industry and for our country."
