Port of Los Angeles Wins Award

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Southern California chapter of the American Public Works Association recently bestowed its B.E.S.T. Award to the Port of Los Angeles for the port’s $46 million John S. Gibson Boulevard/I-110 Freeway Access Ramp Improvements project, which was completed in 2016.

The B.E.S.T. Awards, which stands for Building Excellence Shaping Tomorrow, are annually awarded to public agencies for excellent capital improvement projects and public works programs.

“We are honored to be recognized for this project, which required the cooperation and support of CalTrans, other agencies, project teams and stakeholders to successfully complete on time and under budget,” said Tony Gioiello, deputy executive director of development at the Port of Los Angeles. “Working together, we’ve been able to make an impact in our community and improve the safety of our local highways.”
