This prestigious distinction for exceptional engineering recognized the work completed on the Milton-Madison Bridge Replacement. This highly challenging, yet impressive project managed to cut expected closing days of the bridge from a full year to only a couple of weeks. Additionally, the completed project was 20% below the initial engineers' cost estimate.
Murray Johnson, Buckland & Taylor's Vice President & Project Director, who acted as the Construction Engineering Lead on the Milton-Madison Bridge Replacement, said,
"We are ecstatic to receive the Honor Award tonight on behalf of Buckland & Taylor, Burgess & Niple, Walsh Construction, the Indiana Department of Transportation and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. The success of the project can be directly attributed to the innovation and daily hard work brought by each team member; in addition to the support we received working with the Indiana Department of Transportation and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. We are very proud of this honor and excited to be celebrating with all of the other winners."
After winning the Engineering Excellence Award in the National Gold Award category at the ACEC Washington awards ceremony back in January for this project, Buckland & Taylor, a COWI Company, qualified for a spot at the esteemed ACEC Engineering Excellence Awards Gala, commonly referred to as the "Academy Awards" of the engineering industry.
A panel of judges evaluate the nominated projects based on originality, complexity, and technical, economic and social value. Industry leaders, clients, members of Congress and the media all participated in this annual ceremony.
