America’s Transportation Awards recognize transportation projects that impact people’s lives and are given annually within four regions: Northeast, Midwest, West, and South. Projects within those regions are judged on three criteria: innovative management, whether they were on time, and whether they were on budget.
In the Northeastern Association of State Transportation Officials (NASTO) region, the winning Erdman Anthony projects included: Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Route 22/322 Lewistown Narrows in Mifflin and Juniata Counties, PA; New York State Department of Transportation’s Frederick Douglass Susan B. Anthony Memorial Bridge in Rochester, NY; and Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Route 830 Airport Access Project in Jefferson County, PA.
“We’ve received many awards, but recognition like this, given by our peers, is the most prestigious because our colleagues and peers truly understand the effort and expertise required to have a successful project,” says Rich Stees, core business leader for Erdman Anthony’s transportation group.
The winner for being “On Time” in the large project category is the Route 22/322 Lewistown Narrows in Mifflin and Juniata Counties, PA. The 6.65 mile, $110 million project was the second largest construction project ever awarded by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Erdman Anthony provided preliminary and final design services.
The Frederick Douglass Susan B. Anthony Memorial Bridge in Rochester, NY was the winner in the “Innovative Management” category for medium-sized projects. The $38 million bridge accomplished the dual goals of rebuilding an aging structure over the Genesee River and creating a new identity for the City of Rochester. Erdman Anthony provided preliminary and final design services on this project as well.
In the “On Budget” category for medium-sized projects, the Route 830 Airport Access Project in Jefferson County, PA. won top honors. The $25.5 million project, built in two phases, consists of a new I-80 interchange and a new five-mile road to the Dubois Regional Airport. Erdman Anthony provided construction inspection services.
“We appreciate the confidence the state Departments of Transportation have shown in hiring Erdman Anthony to assist in such high profile projects,” says Vince Weiser, chief operating officer of Erdman Anthony. “And our employees always welcome the opportunity to apply their professional skills and abilities to such signature projects.”
