  • 2017 Project of the Year – BART Warm Springs Extension (WSX). The $700 million project extended BART 5.4 miles south from the existing Fremont Station to the new Warm Springs/South Fremont Station. The project included construction of new trackway, a new at-grade transit station, bridges and other structures, and systems and controls. VC&A provided office engineering and inspection services through The Allen Group | VC&A Joint Venture on-call contract.

  • 2017 Conventional State Highway Project of the Year – Highway 1 Piedras Blancas Realignment. The $19.7 million Caltrans District 5 project realigned a 2.8-mile-long section of Highway 1 to protect the roadway from rising sea level and erosion along the coast in San Luis Obispo. The project involved moving the existing portion of Highway 1 475 feet inland and constructing two 12-foot lanes with 8-foot shoulders and a left turn lane at the former Piedras Blancas Motel, which is currently part of the Heart-San Simeon State Park.
  • 2017 Other/Unique Program of the Year – I-10 Pepper Interchange. The $8 million improvements along the busiest corridor in San Bernardino County included construction of a five-lane bridge over I-10, on/off ramp improvements, bridge aesthetics consistent with the community, access to/from the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, and drainage enhancements. Unique to the project was a Federal Pilot Program that offered incentives for hiring local and military veteran labor.
