Worcester, Pennsylvania -- American Infrastructure, a leading heavy construction company and materials supplier, today announced that its Allan A. Myers division received the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) Eastern Pennsylvania Chapters Award of Excellence for its Pennsylvania Turnpike new electronic interchange project at Exit 320 in Great Valley, PA. Phil Scala, superintendent at Allan A. Myers accepted the award on behalf of the team at the Chapters 22nd Annual Awards of Excellence banquet on November 14.
This was an important project for our company and to be recognized by ABC with an Award of Excellence for it makes the hard work and dedication of our team that much more rewarding, said American Infrastructures Chairman and CEO, A. Ross Myers. This project took significant collaboration among federal, state, and local government organizations, as well as subcontractors and other parties and also had a number of environmental and weather-related challenges. Our team should be extremely proud of being a part of this project where safety, the environment, and high quality were top priority and where they were able to ease the traffic burden for so many travelers.
The project was a new four-way, all-electronic (EZ-Pass) Interchange designed to help alleviate the traffic congestion in the Great Valley area, where more than 50,000 motorists travel each day. The project included widening the Turnpike for three-quarters of a mile in both directions, construction of four bridges, and much more. The project encompassed three townships, and required significant coordination and cooperation to complete. Environmental considerations were a priority for many years before the ground was broken and sound environmental principles were used throughout the construction process.
