Library and Main Street Pedestrian Crossings Project Win American Public Works Association Awards

May 8, 2019 - The American Public Works Association has honored Half Moon Bay's Public Works Department with awards for their work on the new Half Moon Bay Library, and the Main Street Pedestrian Crossings Project.


New Library and Main Street Pedestrian Crossings Project Win Awards From American Public Works Assoc

Each year, the American Public Works Association (APWA) recognizes outstanding projects and professionals who provide and maintain public works infrastructure and services in local government. 

This year, the Silicon Valley Chapter of the APWA has recognized the City of Half Moon Bay's Public Works Department for two outstanding projects:

  • Project of the Year Award for the new Half Moon Bay Library
     
  • Honor Award for the City's Main Street Pedestrian Crossing Project

Both of these well-deserved awards are based on the highest standards and significant criteria including excellence in planning, design, and construction management techniques; how well a project enhances a public service or facility; the quality of community relations which engaged the public around the project; collaboration with partners; and sustainable design features. 

The work to build the new Library excelled in all of these categories, as did the the Main Street Pedestrian Crossings project, which was comprised of pedestrian safety improvements - especially important for the students walking to and from school - including re-striping of crosswalks, addition of pedestrian flashing beacons, curb ramps, and STOP legends.

Congratulations to the Half Moon Bay Public Works staff and all who were involved with making both of these into award-winning projects!
