ITD, Connecting Idaho Partners and the GARVEE office won a highway safety award in early June at the American Road & Transportation Builders Association Transportation Development Foundation’s (ARTBA-TDF) 12th annual “Roadway Work Zone Safety Awareness Awards” event. The award was announced during the 2010 International Bridge Conference in Pittsburgh.
The awards competition from ARTBA recognizes outstanding efforts to reduce roadway work zone construction accidents, injuries and fatalities.
The ARTBA award is the fifth for the Vista project. In addition to the Roadway Work Zone Safety Awareness award, Vista has also won awards from the American Society of Professional Engineers (ASCE), the WTS (Treasure Valley Chapter) Innovative Engineering Solutions Award, the ITD/CIP Performance Award, and the ITD 2010 Excellence in Construction Award. The ASCE Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement award went to Stanley Consultants, the group that designed Vista.
The award explanation cited the effort to notify travelers at the Boise Airport of ongoing construction activity by creating a work zone information kiosk near the baggage claim area. The award also recognized project partner The Langdon Group for its work coordinating the project.
