County of San Joaquin, McHenry Avenue Corridor Improvements Project Wins CTF Award!

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

Two MNS Projects Win 2018 National APWA Project Of The Year Awards!

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.
