Cianbro's Mid-Atlantic Region Earns Four ABC Chesapeake Awards, Including Project of the Year

Cianbro’s Mid-Atlantic team took home four awards at the recent Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Chesapeake Shores Excellence in Construction banquet.  Recognizing Cianbro’s unwavering commitment to safety, ABC Chesapeake awarded the MAR team a chapter award for superior safety efforts for firms with over 500,000 work-hours; and a STEP Platinum Award for excellence in the development of quality safety programs.  

The night got even better when Cianbro’s C&O Canal Towpath Reconstruction for the National Park Service was recognized with an Excellence in Construction Award, and ultimately “Project of the Year” honors.  Cianbro is on an ABC Chesapeake winning streak, having won Project of the Year honors in 2012 on another Park Service project, the Humpback Bridge over Boundary Channel in Washington, D.C.

“We are proud to win this award," said MAR General Manager Chris Scott of the towpath honors, "since this project was truly a team effort.  The Towpath Reconstruction was a technically tough project with limited access, a rich historical context and dynamic site conditions including numerous floods and ice flows.  The dedication and technical expertise of team members such as Wade Simons, Mike Crider, Aric Dreher, Matt Knarr, Jake Klaiss, Tom Mawhinney, Pete McCormick, Dawn Erb and KJ Gould allowed Cianbro to persevere, and ultimately restore a piece of American history for generations to come.”

Elected officials including U.S. Senator Ben Cardin hailed the completion of the project at the ribbon cutting, saying the reopening of the Towpath was a “big, big day” for Maryland.  Cianbro’s work restored the only break in the canal towpath linking Cumberland, Maryland to the nation’s capital, allowing uninterrupted access to the 184.5 mile hiker/biker trail for the first time since 1996.
