OHLA USA, awarded for its Aurora Transportation Center Pedestrian Bridge project
OHLA Group, via its subsidiary Judlau Contracting, has obtained new recognition for the Aurora Transportation Center enhancements and pedestrian bridge over the Fox River (Illinois) project, which has been selected as Project of the Year by the American Public Works Association in the Transportation category.
The new 900-foot pedestrian bridge connects the east and west sides of the Fox River and goes over a natural island known as Blues Island. The infrastructure will provide access to the Aurora Transportation Center from neighborhoods on the west side of the river, doubling the city’s transportation development potential.
This award is in addition to other recognitions that highlight our activity in the U.S. Thus, our subsidiary OHLA USA has been awarded twice by the industry publication, ENR, as Regional Contractor of the Year 2021 (already awarded in 2019 in New York) and for the design and construction of the Patsaouras Plaza Busway Station project in Los Angeles, named Best Regional Project in the Transportation category.
Judlau Contracting, OHLA’s New York subsidiary, has received the National Award of Merit from the Design-Build Institute of America for the execution of a new elevated ramp connecting the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge to the northbound Harlem River Drive in New York.
