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.

Tonight marks the first "Marquette Moment" - at 6:30 PM each night, the City Commission is encouraging you to step outside your front door and take a moment to visually check in on your neighbors - wave, say hi, ask them how they're doing, etc. while continuing to comply with social distancing. We think this is a great way to safely look out for one another and decrease the sense of social isolation and loneliness that weeks of sheltering at home can foster in many of us (myself included). Please participate, share on social media, and let your friends and neighbors know about the Marquette Moment at 6:30 PM each night! ... See MoreSee Less
