APWA Award

The City of Golden was awarded a Public Works Project Award in the 2019 Transportation for Small Community category by the Colorado Chapter of the American Public Works Association for the North Washington Complete Streets Project. The Project Team consists of City Staff, John Hardy, Joe Puhr, and Melissa Crocker;  design consulatants and construction managers.

 Engineering Division

The division is  assisting a CSM Freshman Design Group in the testing of an idea to use recycled asphalt (millings) in asphalt overlay applications. The millings were screened and incorporated into an asphalt sealant product in an attempt to improve durability and friction factor for skid resistance. The test section was installed in the Ulysses Ball Field parking lot and will be monitored for the remainder of the project.

CSM Students apply asphaltsealant in preparation for addition of asphalt millings to serve as wear and friction layer.
