ROCKFORD, Feb. 9 — The American Council of Engineering Companies of Illinois (ACEC) recently hosted their 2015 Engineering Excellence Awards Competition to recognize project achievements 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.

This year, Fehr Graham walked away with two awards in hand.

The I-90 Rebuilding and Widening, Western Segment project, which they were a team member of, won the Illinois Engineering Excellence Honor Award, the second highest honor at the competition. This $644.1 million project widened and reconstructed the Illinois Tollway. The other award Fehr Graham received was for the Scout Camp Road project which involved repositioning a 74-year old bridge over the Apple River in Jo Daviess County, which they completed with little disruption to travelers.

“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.
