ACPA presented the 2018 Sustainable Practices Award to the Florida Department of Transportation and Archer Western Construction in recognition of the innovative design-build team which proposed, engineered, and built a 16-ft. wide full-depth concrete shoulder to serve as an emergency lane along State Route 98 in Jacksonville.

The decision to provide the emergency lane reflects forward-thinking context sensitivity, which is rare and an inherently important part of sustainable construction. This is a positive example of including the societal benefit of avoiding future construction costs and eliminating future lane closures.

A representative of Archer Western Construction accepted the award on behalf of the design-build team.
