The City of Cedar Falls is excited to announce that the University Avenue reconstruction project has been named a finalist in the Roads and Highways category of Bentley Systems, Incorporated Year in Infrastructure 2019 Awards program.

The annual awards program honors extraordinary infrastructure design, construction, and operations throughout the world. 12 independent jury panels of industry experts selected the 54 finalists from 571 nominations submitted by more than 440 organizations in more than 60 countries. Of the 54 total finalists, six come from the United States with Cedar Falls joining San Francisco, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Houston, TX; Columbia, SC; and Apollo Beach, FL as contenders.

“We are very excited to learn that University Avenue has been selected for a Bentley Year in Infrastructure 2019 award,” said Stephanie Houk Sheetz, Cedar Falls Director of Community Development. “There were almost 600 overall entries from around the globe, which included 58 in Roads and Highway. From all of this, University Avenue made the top three in the category.”

The other two finalists in the Roads and Highway category both hail from China. CCCC First Highway Consultants Company Limited (Application of BIM Design on the Expansion of JiHe Expressway) in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, and Chongqing Communications Planning Survey & Design Institute; Guizhou Communications Construction Group Co., Ltd., (Integrated Application of BIM in Meitan-Shiqian Expressway) in Guizhou, China, will both compete with Cedar Falls for the top spot.

The City collaborated with Foth Infrastructure & Environment, LLC for the project, which began construction in March 2016. The transformation incorporated the implementation of roundabouts, sidewalks and bike lanes, as well as benches and landscaping, to achieve higher safety levels for both drivers and pedestrians.

The finalists will present their projects as part of related infrastructure forums at Bentley’s Year in Infrastructure 2019 Conference, which will be held October 21 through October 24, in Singapore at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Conference Center.
