ACEC Award Finalist

The City learned that the Linking Lookout interchange project has been selected as one of 16 finalist for project of the year by the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC). The finalist awards will be announced at the ACEC annual conference in Washington D.C. on May 7, 2019. Getting to the finales is a big achievement because the project is competing against engineering projects from all areas like transit, airports, structures, highways, bridges seaports etc. Just to win in Colorado to advance to the national competition we had to beat projects like the new CSU football stadium, the 40 story 1144 fifteenth building in Denver, the I-70 Mountain Corridor project, The RTD Westminster Station Park among others. Moving on to the national finals is quite an honor.
