I-15 CORE Project among Finalists for ASCE Achievement Award

Press Release

October 14, 2013


Utah County – The recently-completed I-15 CORE project was selected as one of five finalists for the American Society of Civil Engineers 2014 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement award. The design-build project, completed by the Fluor Corporation-led Provo River Constructors joint venture, involved the widening and reconstructing of 24 miles of freeway in 35 months.

“It is an incredible honor to be selected as a finalist by ASCE for this significant award,” said Herb Morgan, business line lead for Fluor Infrastructure. “The success of this innovative transportation project can be attributed to the effective collaboration between the project team and UDOT and its stakeholders.”

The OCEA award was established in 1960 to recognize exemplary civil engineering projects around the world. Each year, ASCE evaluates civil projects based on key criteria such as innovation, resourcefulness, sustainability, project planning and contribution to communities.

For the I-15 CORE highway project, the Fluor partnership was responsible for restoring or rebuilding 10 interchanges and 55 bridges through one of Utah’s busiest-traveled areas. The project involved building two additional lanes over a 24-mile span on both the southbound and northbound routes from American Fork to Provo. The Fluor team also extended the existing express lane from Orem to Provo. Completed in less than three years, the I-15 CORE project was the fastest billion-dollar, design-build public highway project ever completed in the U.S.

Earlier this year, the project was honored by the International Partnering Institute with the 2013 John L. Martin Partnered Project of the Year. The winner of the 2014 OCEA award will be announced at the OPAL Gala on March 20, 2014, in Arlington, Va.
