Each year, The American Public Works Association (APWA) presents the Public Works Projects of the Year awards to promote excellence in the management and administration of public works projects, recognizing the alliance between the managing agency, the contractor, the consultant, and their cooperative achievements. Winners are selected by a 15-member Public Works Projects of the Year Awards Committee and are recognized at APWA’s International Public Works Congress & Exposition, which took place August 30-September 2 in Phoenix, Arizona this year.
This year’s award winners were recognized during APWA’s International Public Works Congress & Exposition Awards Ceremony earlier this month in Phoenix, Arizona.
The APWA Public Works Projects of the Year awards are presented annually and this year, APWA selected projects in five categories: Disaster/Emergency, Environment, Historical Restoration, Structures, and Transportation. This year’s APWA Awards also includes the Projects of the Year Award for Small Cities/Rural Communities (SC/RC). The SC/RC Projects of the Year award is for agencies from cities and counties with a population of 75,000 or less, and was established to promote excellence in demonstrating creativity, ingenuity, and efficiency in the delivery of public works projects that have a profound impact on the community.
