WORCESTER, Mass. - Feb. 17, 2022 - PRLog -- The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named VHB as a Finalist for the 2021 Engineering Excellence Award for their work on the Kelley Square Roundabout in Worcester, MA.

Kelley Square consistently ranked as one of the highest crash locations in Massachusetts, providing little to no traffic control, delineation, or meaningful bike or pedestrian accommodation. VHB delivered a Hybrid Roundabout, a first of its kind in Massachusetts, joining 7 intersecting roadways into a cohesive whole, better defining traffic patterns and establishing traffic calming measures for 40,000 motorists a day, while creating an enhanced bicycle and pedestrian environment to improve non-motorized mobility and safety and enhance local business accessibility.
