Twenty-five public-works projects throughout North America are being hailed for their efficient planning and cooperative achievements.

The American Public Works Association recently awarded its Public Works Projects of the Year, which encompassed everything from new construction of a coastal tunnel to restoration of a 123-year-old courthouse.

Tom Lantos Tunnels
Caltrans

California's Tom Lantos Tunnels won in the Transportation category for a project greater than $75 million. The tunnels replace a treacherous road nicknamed the "Devil's Slide."

The annual awards showcase excellence in the management and administration of public works projects, recognizing the alliance by the managing agency, contractor, consultant and their cooperative achievements.

APWA, headquartered in Kansas City, MO, is a not-for-profit, international organization with over 28,500 members.

The awards were presented at APWA's International Public Works Congress & Exposition Awards Ceremony, held Aug. 17-20 in Toronto, Ontario.

The Categories

Projects were selected in five categories: Disaster or Emergency Construction/Repair; Environment; Historical Restoration/Preservation; Structures; and Transportation.

Centerway Arch Bridge

The Centerway Arch Bridge in Cornings, NY, took one of two Historical Restoration/Preservation awards. The bridge was originally built in 1922.

The projects were categorized by dollar amount.

In addition, all categories except Historical Restoration/Preservation awarded a Small Cities/Rural Communities project, for agencies from cities and counties with a population of 75,000 or less.

The award was established to promote excellence in demonstrating creativity, ingenuity, and efficiency in delivering projects that impact a community.
