Hill International was recognized with the Outstanding Transportation Project Award from Region 9 of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) for the company's management of the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension from Pasadena to Azusa in Southern California.
The award was presented to Hill on March 31, 2017 at the ASCE Region 9's California Infrastructure Symposium and Awards Dinner held at the California Science Center in Los Angeles.
Hill was the program manager for the first segment of the overall $2.15 billion Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension, an 11.5-mile project that extended the Gold Line from Pasadena to Azusa, and currently serves as the program manager of the next segment, a 12.3-mile extension of the commuter rail line from Glendora to Montclair.
"It is an honor to be recognized by ASCE Region 9 for our role in this impressive project," said John K. Skoury, PE, sr. VP in charge of Hill's rail and transit practice in California. "Special thanks go to our client for their confidence in Hill and to our outstanding project team for their devotion to making this project a success.”
