DLZ receives award for local transportation project

Detroit, MI – On March 2, 2019, DLZ Michigan, Inc. was presented the Engineering Honorable Conceptor Award at this year’s American Council of Engineering Companies of Michigan (ACEC/M) Excellence Awards at Motor City Casino’s Sound Board for the Marquette Hospital Transportation Improvements Project. The City of Marquette’s Mik Kilpela and DLZ’s Matt Hamel accepted the award.
DLZ was retained by the City of Marquette for this complex, tight scheduled design. The primary purpose of this project was to design and construct transportation improvements on US-41/M-28 and locally to accommodate the increased traffic due to the new Marquette Hospital. The project included three roundabouts, two stream crossings, and a flood control basin. DLZ also served as the primary coordinator between the City of Marquette, Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, and the Federal Highway Administration. Given that a majority of the project was on an MDOT route, MDOT was heavily involved and issued the final permit. DLZ’s technical abilities and communication efforts were vital in completing the project to the highest standards.
Additionally, DLZ’s recent acquisition, Johnson & Anderson, Inc., was presented the Engineering Merit Award for their design of the Port of Monroe Shipping Terminal in Monroe, MI. DLZ is excited about the acquisition of Johnson & Anderson, Inc. and the water resources and municipal engineering experience that they will bring to the DLZ team.

On behalf of the City, the Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP) applied for, and was awarded, a $2.5M grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation for the Lakeshore Boulevard Reconstruction Project.

The Marquette Lakeshore Restoration grant is funded through the National Coastal Resiliency Program administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Although 35 coastal resiliency projects were funded nationally, only two projects were located on the Great Lakes (see map). If the project is approved by the City Commission, the City will be required to provide a local match of $3M. The SWP will also provide $50,000 in match funds.

There will be a public information session on this topic held on April 3rd in the Citizens' Forum room at Lakeview Arena. More information can be found at: www.marquettemi.gov/lakeshoreblvd/
