2019 Project Achievement Award Winner

The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) needed to widen and revamp ramps along a 3.7-mile stretch of Interstate-15, between U.S. Route 95 and Sahara Ave. Known as Project NEON, it has proven to be the largest infrastructure project in Nevada’s history and has earned the American Concrete Pipe Association’s 2019 Project Achievement Award, ACPA’s annual award to recognize innovative projects utilizing precast concrete pipe or boxes. Although it took nearly two decades to plan Project NEON, the use of precast concrete culverts allowed for a speedy completion once construction began.
