PennDOT presents two local employees with Innovation Awards

CLEARFIELD – Two local PennDOT District 2 employees, one from Clearfield County and one from Elk County, have been recognized with Innovation Awards.

Cody Conklin of Clearfield County was honored for his design and fabrication of folding forks to be mounted on a backhoe to help crews be more efficient and reduce the risk of heavy-lifting injuries.

Meanwhile, Mike Rogato of Elk County was recognized for his idea of painting marks on salt shed walls to improve the proper stacking of salt and providing a clear display of the inventory level.

PennDOT presents the Innovation Awards to its employees who improve work practices and create efficiencies within PennDOT’s daily operations.
