TranSystems' Wacker Drive Reconstruction Wins Top Honor from ACEC
The TranSystems team has won the American Council of Engineering Companies' (ACEC) Grand Conceptor Award for their work on the Wacker Drive and Congress Parkway Reconstruction project for the City of Chicago. TranSystems was the Program Manager on this $303 million project. Located in the heart of Chicago, Ill., this roadway, bridge and tunnel improvement project, involved complex staging to keep 135,000 vehicles and a staggering 150,000 pedestrians moving through the construction zone every day.
 
The Wacker Drive and Congress Parkway Reconstruction project won the ACEC Illinois Chapter Engineering Excellence Award earlier this year, which made it eligible for the National ACEC Grand Conceptor Award. A panel of 25-30 judges representing distinguished professionals in the industry, as well as government, academia and media, conferred for three days to critique and rank all submissions for engineering excellence. The panel first selected the top 24 award winners – 16 Honor Awards and eight Grand Awards. From there, one Grand Conceptor Award was announced at the Engineering Excellence Awards Gala held Tuesday, April 29, in Washington, D.C.

The win was recently featured in Engineering, Inc. An industry magazine published by the ACEC. Click here to view the article.

When the new Airport Transit System (ATS) debuts at O’Hare International next year, travelers will no doubt be thrilled with its ease
and convenience. But otherwise they may take no special note. Of course, that’s kind of the idea – to provide a smooth, seamless, uneventful ride between the terminals and the new, offsite multimodal transit center (a consolidated rental car and parking facility).
