Congratulations to the County of San Joaquin and MNS CM Transportation team for being selected by the APWA Sacramento Chapter for a 2020 Transportation Project of the Year Award for the Improve McHenry project!
Congratulations to the County of San Joaquin’s Improve McHenry project as the California Transportation Foundation’s (CTF) Local Street Project of the Year Award Winner! This project significantly alleviated motorists’ frustrations by literally and figuratively clearing the air along one of the busiest and most essential routes between San Joaquin County and Stanislaus County. The McHenry Avenue Corridor Improvements included replacing two bridges, widening the roadway to include a two-way left turn lane, and signalizing the McHenry Avenue/River Road intersection. Using a robust public outreach strategy focused on digital technology and the ingenuity of its project team, the project was completed 6 months ahead of schedule and over $1 million under budget.
“The project was successful because the owner, the contractor and the construction management team knew from the beginning that working together on solutions for a successful outcome is not a cliché but a reality when executing complex transportation projects.” Mauricio Rivera, MNS Resident Engineer

The Elkhorn Road Emergency Storm Damage Repair Project in Monterey County wins a National American Public Works Association (APWA) Project of the Year Award for Disaster/Emergency Construction/Repair projects less than $5 Million. Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge, California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 5, wins a National American Public Works Association (APWA) Project of the Year Award for Disaster/Emergency Construction/Repair projects over $5 Million but less than $25 Million.
Elkhorn Road Emergency Storm Damage Repair: Winter storms battered the Central Coast of California in January and February of 2017. In February, cyclone force winds ripped through the Monterey-Salinas area, shredding trees, blocking lanes of Highway 101, and wreaking havoc throughout the County. This new winter storm added a new vocabulary word to area residents: bombogenesis. This rare occurrence of a bombogenesis is a mid-latitude cyclone that drops in surface barometric pressure by 24 or more millibars in a 24-hour period, which means intense downpours along with extremely strong winds battering the area.

This project will transform the City’s core business center into a revitalized, pedestrian friendly area. The project reduces traffic lanes between Del Monte and Fremont Boulevard from four to two lanes, making way for wider and more accessible sidewalks. These new sidewalks will calm traffic and provide key beatification features to the corridor with their wide walkways, new pedestrian lighting, and lighted palm trees. Also included in the project scope is the construction of four large storm drainage water retention structures under the roadway to store and infiltrate run off from the street. [ read more… ]
