Hays County Commissioner honored for service to transportation

Friday, December 19, 2014

Hays County Commissioner, Will Conley, received the Texas Department of Transportation Road Hand award, a prestigious tradition acknowledging those who have made improvements to transportation in their communities.

Commissioner Conley has been a major player in planning viable transportation projects in the region. He has made a difference by serving as chairman on the Capitol Area Regional Transportation Planning Organization and the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, as well as through his work in Hays County to make safety improvements to roadways and establish transportation plans to prevent future traffic congestion.

“Commissioner Conley, along with other leaders in Hays County, faces the challenge of planning transportation in one of the fastest growing counties in the state,” said Greg Malatek, Austin District Engineer. “He has devoted time and effort to improving TxDOT and the way the agency does business. His enthusiasm, leadership, and dedicated public service are invaluable and appreciated.”

The Road Hand Award was created in 1973 by former State Highway Engineer Luther DeBerry. He recognized that TxDOT owes a great deal to its many friends and supporters for their efforts to make the Texas highway program the best in the world. The award is the highest tribute to citizens who freely give their time, energy, and vision to champion transportation projects in Texas.

“It was a surprise and honor to receive the State's highest recognition for a local official in transportation,” Conley said. “Thank you to the citizens of Precinct 3, Hays County Commissioner's Court, and my colleagues across the region for giving me the opportunity to work on this important issue for our community and State.”
