The American Public Works Association Monterey Bay Chapter awarded the 2019 Project of the year, Award of Merit to San Benito County, MME and Don Chapin Construction for the San Benito River Parkway. The new road was designed by MME, and was created to provide access to the County’s planned River Parkway and Regional Park. Acting as a bypass for through traffic, San Benito River Parkway enables closure of the portion of Nash Road that borders San Benito High School. The closure of Nash Road greatly improves the safety of students coming and going from San Benito High School. MME is truly honored to be the recipient of such a prestigious award.

The 32-mile Coastal Rail Trail has been a long anticipated public-use improvement project. The first segment of the project includes widening the San Lorenzo River Trestle Walkway from 4 feet to 10 feet to make it more accessible to pedestrians and cyclists. MME is the Engineer of Record contracted with the City of Santa Cruz Public Works Department to prepare plans, specifications and estimates for the Trestle widening portion of the project. Our design solution to widen the existing walkway will save the City millions of dollars, compared to the original plan for an entirely new bridge. We are excited to be involved in this project, the greater portion of which will provide alternative “green” transportation to the public. The groundbreaking commenced on January 10, 2010. Read more about the Trestle widening in the front page story in the Santa Cruz Sentinel.
