Practical Design Competition Winners
View All Submittals 2008 Award Winners
Practical Design continues to return dividends to Missouri taxpayers, enabling MoDOT to provide more improvements to its sprawling system. At this year’s annual conference of the Transportation Engineers Association of Missouri, some of the best examples of Practical Design were recognized with “Awards for Excellence.”
The competition, which received 30 entries, was co-sponsored by MoDOT and the American Council of Engineering Companies-Missouri.
In making the presentations, Chief Engineer Kevin Keith noted that the eight winning projects represented $83 million in savings. All 30 submitted projects represented $361 million in savings.
Each MoDOT district was allowed to enter two projects; consultants were allowed one entry per firm. The entries were then evaluated by the team of Paul Corr (Fred Weber, Inc.), Larry Benz, Cole County (and TEAM president), Tom Gredell (Gredell Engineering Resources representing ACEC-MO), Kevin Kelly (FHWA), Mike Curtit (MoDOT Traffic), Paul Kelly (MoDOT Bridge) and Kathy Harvey (MoDOT Design).
