The purpose of the awards is to celebrate success, share lessons learned and best practices, and to acknowledge the collaborative efforts of teams and individuals who achieve extraordinary results.

Congratulations to the team of ODOT District 3, Mosser Construction, Inc. and GPD Group for winning the 2014 IPI (International Partnering Institute) Partnered Project of the Year Award – Ruby Level for their work on the ERI 6 Railroad Grade Separation Project. ODOT, GPD and Mosser, the prime contractor, will be recognized at the IPI Awards Celebration in San Francisco on Thursday, May 15, 2014.

US 6 is located in the City of Sandusky and Margaretta Township in Erie County. The surrounding area is a mix of residential and commercial property. The goal of this project was to eliminate the risk of train-vehicle collisions and reduce delays caused by train crossings. The project included preliminary engineering study, design of rail grade separation over the Norfolk & Southern Railroad, constructability reviews, stormwater detention design, retaining walls, and maintenance of traffic.

GPD team members include Davin Ng, Marty Joliat, Dante Castronova, Dan Palkovic and Ron Rymer.

Kudos to the team on a job well done!
