American Structurepoint Wins 2022 ACEC Indiana Grand Project AwardCorporate, Engineering + InfrastructureMay 02, 2022
American Structurepoint has earned the Grand Project Award for engineering excellence from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) of Indiana for the SR 37 and 126th Street interchange project in Fishers, Indiana. In addition to American Structurepoint, the City of Fishers, Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), Hamilton County, and the City of Noblesville were recognized for collaborating to address traffic congestion and safety challenges along the SR 37 corridor in Hamilton County, Indiana.
The Grand Project Award, one of the state’s most prestigious engineering distinctions, is presented each year by ACEC Indiana to recognize an outstanding engineering achievement demonstrating the highest degree of merit and ingenuity. The award is the highest honor given to the best engineering project in the state.
We are honored to share this recognition with the City of Fishers, INDOT, Hamilton County, and the City of Noblesville to improve traffic flow and solve complex congestion issues along the SR 37 corridor," - Rick Conner, American Structurepoint President
“We are honored to share this recognition with the City of Fishers, INDOT, Hamilton County, and the City of Noblesville to improve traffic flow and solve complex congestion issues along the SR 37 corridor,” said Rick Conner, president of American Structurepoint. “At American Structurepoint, we take pride in improving lives in the communities we serve. This is a great example of that because the improvements will reduce the amount of traffic congestion, improve access to the businesses along the corridor, and enhance safety for people who travel on SR 37. The work we do can even save lives, and I am proud of what we do and our team who constantly goes the extra mile to achieve successful results like this.”
As a part of the project, American Structurepoint’s design team removed a traffic signal at the SR 37 and 126th Street intersection, which had been prone to significant traffic delays. Traffic now flows freely via a teardrop-shaped roundabout interchange at 126th Street. A new bridge as well as a pedestrian and bicycle multi-use path allows traffic on 126th Street to pass over a reconstructed SR 37 lowered about 15 feet below grade. The new interchange vastly improves traffic flow, relieves traffic congestion, and provides additional safety for pedestrians and bicyclists.
The SR 37 corridor plan includes intersection improvements at three more locations: SR 37 at 131st Street, SR 37 at 141st Street, and SR 37 and 146th Street. American Structurepoint is designing the 131st Street interchange and providing program management for the entire corridor project. Construction on the entire project is scheduled for completion in 2024.
