Cleveland RTA's HealthLine wins engineering award

Posted on July 20, 2010

The Ohio Chapter of American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) recognized the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority's (RTA) bus rapid transit System (BRT) — the HealthLine — as the top Ohio engineering project of the year.

According to ACEC Ohio, the award recognizes engineering firms for projects that demonstrate a high degree of achievement, value and ingenuity.

"From the groundbreaking in 2004 to its opening in 2008, we've been really proud of the HealthLine, so it's great to receive this award from the engineering community that appreciates the uniqueness and complexity of our bus rapid transit project," said Mike Schipper, RTA deputy GM, engineering and project management. "We are grateful that the HealthLine was selected over 22 other projects for excellence in engineering to win the Grand Award, the group's highest honor."

The ACEC chose the HealthLine for its excellence in original or innovative application of new or existing techniques, perception by the public, design considerations and complexity.

RTA and Wilbur Smith Associates jointly accepted the award.
