At the recent American Public Works Association (APWA) Kansas Chapter Conference, BG Consultants was honored to receive two awards at the 2015 Awards Ceremony.
In the Category: Project of the Year Small City/Rural County Disaster or Emergency Construction/Repair, the Harveyville Tornado Disaster Emergency Wastewater Repairs was awarded that honor. An EF-2 tornado struck Harveyville in February 2012, depositing debris into the City's wastewater treatment lagoons and negatively impacting the ability of the lagoons to treat wastewater. BG Consultants served as the engineering consultant throughout the duration of the project, designing and implementing a plan to isolate each lagoon and clear them of sludge and debris.
In the Category: Project of the Year Less than $5 Million Transportation, the 23rd Street & Iowa Street Reconstruction project in the City of Lawrence was honored. The City contracted BG Consultants to redesign geometric improvements and traffic signal improvements, enhancing the intersection’s capacity, level of service and increase the level of public safety. A construction traffic control and construction sequencing plan was created that safely and efficiently carried nearly a 60,000 vehicles a day through the construction zone. Congratulations to all those who worked on these projects!
