Boston – The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named TransSystems as a 2021 Bronze Engineering Excellence Award winner for its work on the Gallivan Boulevard and Morton Street improvements.

The project included reconfiguration of the Morton Street intersections with Gallivan Boulevard and West Selden Street including installation of new traffic signals at both locations, coordination of four signalized intersections, and upgrading sidewalks and driveways to meet ADA requirements. Consistent with the Complete Streets policy, the project featured safe, accessible pedestrian paths and bicycle lanes throughout the corridor.
