Reconstruction of Fillmore Avenue is Award Winner

Friday, March 25, 2016

Watts received a 2016 ACEC New York Gold Award for the Fillmore Avenue Reconstruction project in Category H: Transportation.  Jonathan Watts accepted the award on behalf of the firm at the ACEC New York Engineering Excellence Awards Gala at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City on March 19th.

This $2.2 million project was a locally administered Federal Aid project sponsored by the City of Buffalo Department of Public Works, Streets and Parks.  The 1-mile long project corridor is within the busy Fillmore Business District and is an important link between Delaware Park and Martin Luther King, Jr. Park, both of which are in Buffalo’s Olmsted system.  Watts was responsible for Phases I – VI and provided construction inspection and administration services.

Congratulations to Phillip Galbo, Jessica Ross, Fred Brown and our transportation group who all contributed to this project and the award submission.  Great job!
