Pinnacle Winners Advance Construction And Enhance The Carolinas!

CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Carolinas AGC (CAGC) announces the winners of the 2012 Pinnacle Awards—the most prestigious recognition in the Carolinas construction industry. The Pinnacle Awards embody CAGC's mission of advancing the construction industry to enhance the quality of life and deliver a sustainable difference in the Carolinas.


BEST HIGHWAY PROJECT (1 of 2 awards) The Western Wake Freeway - 12 miles of the I-540 Triangle Express around Raleigh, North Carolina

Contractor: Raleigh-Durham Roadbuilders, a partnership of Archer Western Contractors and Granite Construction Company.

This design-build project was the largest project in the history of the North Carolina Department of Transportation, with 34 bridges, over six million cubic yards of excavation and embankment, and nearly 900,000 square yards of concrete pavement. Located in three separate municipalities, it crosses 15 local roadways and two major interstates. Many homes that had to be removed were donated to the nonprofit Builders of Hope organization.

And as the first modern toll road in the state, it was also the first in the U.S. to be fully designed as an Open Road Tolling facility, meaning no tollbooths for motorists using electronic billing.

The project also represented a safety first, with North Carolina's first formal partnership between the NC Department of Labor and a contractor on a Turnpike Authority roadway project.

BEST HIGHWAY PROJECT (2 of 2 awards) The Emergency Bridge on NC 12 at Pea Island, North Carolina

Contractor: Carolina Bridge Company Orangeburg, South Carolina

Hurricane Irene had breached this major Outer Banks artery, cutting off the only land access to the mainland for all the residents and businesses along 70 miles of NC 12 south of the bridge. Within one day of NCDOT's request, the construction team's emergency mode launched with mobilizing equipment and materials on-site, even calling upon competitors to divert incoming supply trucks. The work continued seven days a week, 24 hours a day, including the dead of night to take advantage of low tides, racing to reopen this critical roadway.
