Commonwealth Avenue Project Recognized

Commonwealth Avenue

Boston – The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named BETA Group as a 2021 Bronze Engineering Excellence Award winner for their work on the Commonwealth Avenue Revitalization.

The City of Boston recognizes that great street design is about connecting people to destinations, services, opportunities, and each other. Commonwealth Avenue lacked some orderly and safe accommodation of the multi-modal demands on the roadway. The resulting improvements transform the visual environment and extend the City’s network of bike, pedestrian, transit, vehicular amenities, and opportunity for uninterrupted access to destinations via safe, comfortable, convenient streets.

The project responds directly to the Boston 2030 Vision Plan. It achieves transportation equity, improves safety and reliability, and significantly increases the effectiveness and use of public transit, walking, and biking.

The 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards were recently announced and will be celebrated at the virtual ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala. The awards celebrate innovation, ingenuity, and excellence in engineering achievement. Entries for the 2022 Spring Engineering Excellence awards are now available.
