Fehr Graham Receives ACEC Awards For I-90 and Scout Camp Bridge Project

 LISLE, Il –At the American Council of Engineering Companies of Illinois – 2015 Engineering Excellence Awards, Fehr Graham received two Illinois Engineering Excellence Awards. The Engineering Excellence Awards Competition recognizes projects of engineering achievement by Illinois consulting engineering firms. Entries are judged on the basis of engineering excellence, the degree to which the client’s needs are met, and the benefits to the public welfare and private practice of engineering. The award ceremony took place at the Sheraton Lisle Hotel.
Fehr Graham was a team member on a major project that received an award at the conference. The I-90 Rebuilding and Widening, Western Segment project was awarded an Illinois Engineering Excellence Honor Award for Transportation. Fehr Graham was a consultant on the team completing a section of the Jane Addams Memorial Highway western segment that extends 37 miles between the Elgin Toll Plaza and the Cherry Valley Interchange in Rockford, Illinois. This $644.1 million widening and reconstruction project is one of the first projects completed under the Illinois Tollway Authority’s 15-year, $12 billion capital program, Move Illinois.
Fehr Graham also received an award for the Scout Camp Road project involving repositioning a 74-year old bridge over the Apple River in Jo Daviess County.
 In order to address vertical and horizontal alignment deficiencies, the roadway was realigned and the new bridge repositioned. The roadway realignment allowed the existing bridge and roadway to be utilized during the majority of the construction operations, minimizing disruptions to the traveling public. 
“We are excited to be recognized for such an honor. Our team was creative in their problem-solving to come to a solution on these projects and we are pleased with the results.” said Mick Gronewold, Fehr Graham’s chairman of the board.
“It was a pleasure to work with such a great team at Fehr Graham and we are honored that our project was chosen for a Merit Award.” said Stephen Keeffer, County Engineer, Jo Daviess County Highway Department.
