Following the completion of the Port of Vancouver’s decade-long West Vancouver Freight Access (WVFA) project, the America Council of Engineering Companies presented the port with this year’s Engineering Excellence Grand Award.
The $251 million project included a new port rail entrance along with 21 sub-projects and expanding the port’s rail corridor. The WVFA project award represents one of the four projects recognized for the Southern Washington and Northern Oregon regions.
“The WVFA has been the recipient of several American awards as well as one international award, and we should all be proud of our involvement in the project,” said Director of Engineering and Project Delivery Monty Edberg. “I can say that pretty much everyone on our staff has been involved in this project. And I think we need to recognize the commission’s role in this, too. Because of your steadfastness – your stick-to-itiveness with this project – and your vision, I’d like to present the Board of Commissioners with…our Grand Award for 2019.”
The “Project of the Year” award went to City of Vancouver’s Waterfront Park.
