Metro CEO Phil Washington has received the distinguished Wilber S. Smith Friends of ENO award, honoring individuals who have given years of extraordinary support and service to transportation. The award was presented Thursday at the Eno Center for Transportation’s 24th Annual Future Leaders Development Conference dinner in Washington D.C.

“I am honored to receive this important award representing the significant strides we have made – nationwide – in advancing transportation development for the future,” Washington said. “The Eno Center’s mission is to seek continuous improvement in transportation and its public and private leadership in order to increase mobility, safety and sustainability. It has been my pleasure to be a part of this.”

Washington is a former member of the Eno Board of Directors and a long-time supporter of Eno’s Center for Transportation Leadership. This award is named after former president and chairman Wilbur S. Smith, an innovator and engineer in modern transportation systems, who helped design and develop major parts of the Interstate highway system, the New Jersey Turnpike, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and the mass transit system in Washington, D.C.

The Eno Center for Transportation has been at the forefront of safe mobility efforts since it was founded in 1921 by William Phelps Eno, who pioneered the field of traffic management in the United States and Europe. The Center focuses on all modes of transportation by supporting professional development programs, policy forums and publications.

Each year, Eno gives 20 of the nation’s top graduate students in transportation a first-hand look at how national transportation policies are developed. Students apply to the program and those selected as Eno Fellows go to Washington D.C. for a week of meetings with federal officials and leaders of business and non-profit organizations.
