ASHE First State Awards Pennoni in 2015 Project Showcase
Mar 28, 2016
The First State section of the American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) recognized three Pennoni projects in their 2015 Project Showcase Awards program. The awards identify projects in Delaware, along the Maryland Eastern Shore, and within contiguous counties in Pennsylvania and New Jersey for successful completion and impact on the community. The competition bestows awards in 10 value categories – Commitment to Safety, Value to the Traveling Public, Teamwork, Innovation, Quality, Cost Performance, Schedule Performance, Project Necessity, Adaptability, and Unique Challenges – in addition to the 2015 Project of the Year and the 2015 People's Choice awards.
The rehabilitation of the Furness Bridge, led by Senior Engineer Joseph Spadea, was awarded Project of the Year for Unique Challenges and Commitment to Safety categories. The submission highlighted the innovative application used for the rehabilitation of the century-old stone masonry bridge, while maintaining its aesthetic integrity.
The Bridge Safety Inspection Program with the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT), led by Senior Engineer III Jennifer Laning and Senior Engineer Nate Buttorff, was awarded Project of the Year for Project Necessity and Commitment to Safety. The submission highlighted Pennoni's work with DelDOT on the safety inspection of more than 1,600 bridges throughout Delaware.
Pennoni's road and bridge improvements to Old Elk Neck Road in Cecil County, MD was awarded Project of the Year for Value to the Traveling Public and Commitment to Safety. The project was also recognized as the 2015 Project of the Year. The project submission highlighted Pennoni's work, led by Associate Vice President and Division Manager Philip Horsey, on the bridge improvement and road widening of Old Elk Neck Road, which were essential to the surrounding communities after the bridge deck was destroyed as a result of a flash flood.
