Caltrans Offers $25K for Ideas To Help End Traffic Nightmares

If you’ve got ideas to help make rush hour traffic on California highways more bearable, Caltrans wants to hear it — so much so that they are offing a $25,000 cash prize for the best solution.

Caltrans recently announced that they are looking for “best unique idea with the highest likelihood of being successfully put into action” to help the state’s congested transportation systems.

The contest, called “$25K Find A New Way” is open to California residents 18 years of age or older. Entries will be evaluated on the idea’s innovation, potential benefit, and ease of implementation.

Contest entries are due October 13, 2015 at 5 p.m. The winner of the contest will be chosen by the end of 2015.
