For Utah DOT Book of Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Construction:
Utah DOT State awards –
Utah State Outstanding Employee (runner-up)
UDOT Technician of the Year
National awards –
American Public Works Association Award of Merit
American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) National Pathfinder Quality Team Achievement Award
My work editing the Utah DOT Book of Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Construction was groundbreaking because Utah was the first to use the Construction Specification Institute (CSI) format. The new book changed how the state communicated with its consultants and increased UDOT’s visibility in the transportation industry.
