Gold ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence Award winners:
- Green International Affiliates for the Crescent Street over Millers River Bridge Replacement project for the MassDOT in Athol, MA. The Crescent Street Over Millers River Bridge sits within feet of the L.S. Starrett Company, the leading employer in Athol, MA.
