EquipmentWatch, the world's leader in data, software, and insights for the heavy equipment industry, announced the nominees for the first annual Lowest Cost of Ownership Awards. The Lowest Cost of Ownership Awards are the industry's only accolade of its kind, based on empirical data regarding the long-term cost of heavy equipment.

Years of wear and tear and several safety-related incidents in 2004 have prompted the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) to add funding for the replacement of the Route 5 bridge, known as the Judith Stewart Dresser Memorial Bridge, to the working draft of the Six-Year Improvement Plan, which the CTB is expected to adopt in June.

Hand-wrought nails, stemmed glassware and ceramics dating back to 1750 to 1780 are among items discovered by Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) archaeologists as part of a routine archaeological investigation of the area where the replacement of the Judith Stewart Dresser Memorial Bridge will be constructed over the Chickahominy River later this year.
