- Randy Braden, retired Alabama Department of Transportation official, has been recognized by SC&RA with the Industry Achievement Award. Braden is one of only four government officials who has received the award. He was recognized for his significant leadership in advancing harmonization in the specialized transportation industry.

Braden is presently an SC&RA member through the Pit Row Group. He was the former chair of SASHTO and chair of AASHTO’s Permit Harmonization Committee. He led phases 1 and 2 of the AASHTO Harmonization Initiative
