BUSINESS NEWS DEWBERRY’S WESTERN PLACERVILLE INTERCHANGE PROJECT EARNS CMAA PROJECTOFTHEYEARAWARD Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, has announced that it has been named the recipient of the Construction Management Association of America’s (CMAA) Project of the Year Award. The firm’s Western Placerville Interchange Phase II project, which was completed for the City of Placerville, received the award for transportation projects under $50 million. Dewberry provided construction management services for the project, which features a new off-ramp at Ray Lawyer Drive on U.S. 50, new auxiliary lane on east-bound U.S. 50, new park-and-ride facility, 400 feet of Type 5 retaining wall, street lighting along Forni Road and a signalized intersection at Ray Lawyer Drive and east-bound off-ramp intersection, and roughly 2,000 feet of new roadway for the realignment of Forni Road, including curb, gutter, sidewalk, storm drain facility, and a Class I bike path.

The project was completed in 2020 and was the result of coordinated efforts between Dewberry, the City of Placerville, California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), ElDoradoCountyTransportation Commission, El Dorado Irrigation District, El Dorado County Jail, and other private energy, gas, and telecommunications providers. “This project included many complete streets elements with improvements to both freeway and local streets, which will reduce traffic congestion for both commuters and visitors heading to Lake Tahoe,” says Dewberry Project Manager and Associate Vice President Howard Zabell, PE. “Having the opportunity to play a role in making this project happen and earning an award for our efforts is truly an honor.” Established in 1956, Dewberry is headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, with more than 50 locations and more than 2,000 professionals nationwide.

teams that Berzrukov studied. Fault lines develop between the technical staff and administrative staff and between offices or departments or studios. What is a leader to do? Continuing the high school analogy, Lindbergh and Miller offered a constructive way forward: “If a couple of students from each group are also into, say, running the school’s canned food drive, there is now a third, overlapping group. And if there’s a conflict between a cheerleader and a clarinetist, there are now networks for resolving it.” Your chemistry assignment for the next week: 1. Map out the fault lines in your organization and reflect for a moment on how they manifest themselves day-to-day. 2. Identify the people who form the connective tissue across the fault lines. They play an important role in your firm. 3. Get your canned food drives going. Go beyond superficial (but fun, and important) social gatherings and create opportunities for people on different sides of a fault line to interact on a meaningful level – to solve a specific problem or advance an initiative in your strategic plan.
