The Patrick-Murray Administration's innovative "Heavy Lift" bridge replacement project in Phillipston has received the Infrastructure Project of the Year Award for infrastructure projects valued at less than $10 million by the Construction Management Association of America, New England Chapter.
MassDOT's bridge installation on Route 2 in Phillipston in fall 2010 combined innovation and customer service.
A new bridge superstructure took shape right next to the intersection of Route 2 and Route 2A. Once complete, crews demolished the old bridge and moved the new bridge in place in a matter of hours.
The Patrick-Murray Administration's historic MassDOT Accelerated Bridge Program also received the Program Management of the Year award.
The annual Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) Awards are given to infrastructure and construction projects of varying sizes based on project value. The Awards Committee composed of professional construction managers considers safety, quality and cost management, innovation and creativity, and customer satisfaction in choosing the winning projects. CMAA has 6,000 members nationwide.
