On April 27, the department joined construction industry professionals for the 2011 Caltrans “Excellence in Partnering” awards, which recognizes contractors who put into action what they learned from the Partnering Program to deliver successful highway projects throughout the state.

Griffith Co. was recently awarded a Silver Caltrans Partnering Award for the Interstate 10 High Occupancy Vehicle project in Los Angeles County. This $16.2 million project replaced pavement with rapid strength concrete while constructing new approach slabs and drainage over forty weekends.  Charlie Pessa was the PM for Griffith Company & Simon Wang was Caltrans’ Resident Engineer on the project.  Partnering was facilitated by Neal Flesner of Ventura Consulting Group. Congratulations to the team!
