Capital Improvement Program Manager Rosemarie Gaglione attended the APWA Awards luncheon to accept the award on the City’s behalf.

The City’s contractor, Granite Construction, built the roundabout last summer, and completed it on time and under budget. Wallace Group designed the project which funded through a combination of sources including Goleta Transportation Improvement Program (GTIP), State, Local Partnership Program (SLPP) grants, Measure A and Regional Surface Transportation Program funds.

This is the second award the City has received from APWA. Last year the City’s Cathedral Oaks Overcrossing and Overhead Replacement Project won a Best in Category award for projects over $10 million.
