The awards will be presented as part of its 2002 Transportation Summit on Feb. 8 at the Princeton Marriott-Forrestal Village in Princeton.
Each year, the NJQI presents a series of awards to projects throughout the state that exemplified transportation construction.
The five member firms that will be presented with an award include:

“I am proud that we have such quality contractors as members of our organization,” said Richard L. Forman, AGC executive director. “These companies are among the transportation leaders of the state. By recognizing their exceptional accomplishments, the New Jersey Quality Initiative is helping set the quality bar a notch higher and acknowledging the cooperation it takes between the public and private sector to provide a quality product.”
The purpose of the NJQI is to promote the implementation of quality principles and practices throughout New Jersey’s transportation industry through proactive leadership, communication, partnering and quality programs and initiatives by linking the government agencies in New Jersey that make transportation decisions. It includes the Department of Transportation, New Jersey Turnpike, NJ Transit, New Jersey Highway Authority, South Jersey Transportation Authority and the Port Authority of the New York and New Jersey.
