Local Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement (LOCEA) Presentation and Awards with Keynote Address by ASCE President-Elect Kristina Swallow

The Seattle Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has chosen three projects to receive the 2017 Local Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Awards.

  • Outstanding Structures Project – SR520 Floating Bridge
  • Outstanding Water Resources Project – King County Barton CSO Control
  • Outstanding Small Project – Golden Gardens Drainage and Stairway Renovation

The LOCEA Awards recognize projects that have improved the quality of life and contributed to the economic development of the local community, area, or region. These projects represent the successful combination of multiple engineering objectives, including design innovation and excellence, environmental sustainability, cost effectiveness, the effective use of materials, and aesthetics.

The Seattle Section of ASCE is also recognizing the Morse Lake Pump Plant for an Honor Award in the water resources category as part of this year’s LOCEA Award competition.

ASCE President-Elect Kristina Swallow will give a keynote address.

Please join us for our last meeting until September to celebrate these achievements!
