Sacramento, CA – HDR Engineering, Inc. of Irvine has received an Honor Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of California (ACECCA) for their work on the Colton Crossing Flyover Rail-to-Rail Grade Separation in Colton, CA.
Using an innovative design that helped deliver the project more than $100 million under budget eight months ahead of schedule, HDR helped Union Pacific eliminate a bottleneck at one of the nation’s busiest rail-to-rail intersections by constructing an 8,150-foot flyover structure to take the client’s east/west tracks 35 feet above the north/south tracks of BNSF Railway. The project reduces delays, improves air quality and decreases noise for local residents.
HDR Engineering, Inc. will be honored at the 2014 EEA Banquet held on February 3 in Sacramento. Registration: ACECCA 2014 EEA Banquet Event
