New honored for distinction in government website, website design

The Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) has received an international award and an honorable mention for its newly designed website. Chosen among 5,000 entries worldwide, was recognized with the Award of Distinction in the government website category at the 2021 Communicator Awards and received an honorable mention for website design in the 2021 Hermes Creative Awards.

“We are delighted to be recognized for our new website,” said Lorie Tudor, ARDOT Director. “Our goal in creating this new site was to provide Arkansans with user-friendly access to the latest information on our highway construction programs and services, and we’re proud for it to be recognized as a benchmark for government websites around the world.”

The redesigned combines curated content from the Arkansas Highway Commission and each of the department’s divisions, districts, and programs into one streamlined user experience that is accessible from any desktop or mobile device.

The Arkansas Department of Transportation worked with the state’s digital services provider, NIC Arkansas, to design the modern, responsive website and build an inclusive user experience across all platforms. NIC Arkansas is part of NIC Inc., a wholly owned division of Tyler Technologies.
