PASADENA, CA. – Parsons is pleased to announce that on January 12, 2009, the International Road Federation (IRF) awarded their 2008 Global Road Achievement Award for program management to Community Transportation Solutions for its work on the Louisville Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges project.
Parsons is the managing partner in a joint venture, Community Transportation Solutions, acting as the general engineering consultant for this $4.1 billion project for the Indiana Department of Transportation and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. The project includes a complete reconstruction of the I-65, I-64, and I-71 interchange in downtown Louisville, Kentucky; a cable-stayed bridge over the Ohio River carrying northbound I-65; the reconstruction of I-65 in downtown Jeffersonville, Indiana; a 3.5-mile extension of KY 265, which includes a 1,900-foot tunnel on the east side of Louisville; a cable-stayed bridge over the Ohio River carrying KY 265; and a 4.4-mile extension of SR 265 in Indiana.
The IRF Global Road Achievement Award program management category is open to public and private sector organizations that show leadership in providing integrated services for the management of large transportation infrastructure programs. The winner is selected from those entries that demonstrate program goals and objectives being met, that show a high degree of complexity and an ability to deal with a variety of issues, and that exemplify the ideals of program and project management.
“On behalf of Parsons and our partners at Community Transportation Solutions, I would like to express our appreciation in being selected for the 2008 Global Road Achievement Award in the Project Management category. This award highlights our team’s positive ongoing relationship with the members of the Bi-State Management Team, the Indiana Department of Transportation, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, and the Federal Highway Administration,” said Chuck Harrington, Parsons Chairman and CEO. “It also underscores the traditional values we share with our customers and the visionary thinking that led to innovative solutions.”
