New NY Bridge Project, 2020 Project of the Year Award Application


The NY Bridge Project in the Transportation more than $75 million category has been selected as one of the American Public Works Association’s Public Works Projects of the Year for 2020. As the managing agency, primary contractor and primary consultant for this project we are pleased to inform you of this honor. Your selection puts you in a very elite group of winners and APWA is proud to have those on this project epitomize the public works profession and our association.

We have notified APWA’s Board of Directors and copied your local chapter of this prestigious honor you have been selected to receive.  In addition, as the project’s primary agency, primary contractor and consultant you will each receive a plaque recognizing this achievement at the APWA annual Awards Recognition Ceremony.  This ceremony will be held in conjunction with the 2020 PWX Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana and is scheduled for Monday, August 31, at 5:00 p.m. at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. 

While the ceremony is held in conjunction with the APWA Public Works Expo (PWX), there are no fees to participate in the Awards reception. However, if you elect to participate in PWX, you or your designated representative will be responsible for any associated travel costs and registration fees.  To provide you with more information about the association and exposition, please visit our website at 

Currently, APWA is still planning for a live PWX event in New Orleans but are also actively monitoring the situation. We have paused on opening registration until late April or early May. A final decision will be made mid- to late- May on the event. 

This is a very special occasion and we look forward to fully recognizing your contributions and achievements in the field of public works.  For national awards staff to make the necessary preparations for you to receive your award, we will need you to do the following.

Please fill out the “Plaque Information Form.”  We ask that the managing agency, primary contractor and primary consultant each complete by May 13, 2019 by using this link copy and paste into browser if link does not open.

A “Project of the Year Participation Form” will be sent as soon as we have made the final decision on holding PWX (Public Works Expo) in New Orleans.
