ACEC California Congratulates Caltrans and San Francisco County for Accelerated Schedule and Innovation on Presidio Parkway Project Issues

The Board of Directors of the American Council of Engineering Companies, California (ACEC California) issued a Resolution this week congratulating and applauding Caltrans and the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) as the driving forces behind the successful $2 billion Presidio Parkway project, which is creating a dramatically safer southern approach to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

“Our board recognizes that both Caltrans and SFCTA chose an innovative path in approaching this tremendous engineering feat, and we applaud them for having the foresight and courage to employ California’s landmark public-private partnership (P3) law to finance the project, speed project delivery, ensure long term safety and maintenance and dramatically reduce financial risks to the general public,” said Paul Meyer, executive director of ACEC California. The Resolution, which was recently unanimously approved by the 60 member Board of Directors of ACEC California, also acknowledged the engineering and land surveying, construction management and other businesses, which created jobs in California and helped make the project a success.
