UTA obtains three honors for FrontRunner project


The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) recently won three awards for its FrontRunner commuter-rail project.

Intermountain Contractor magazine recognized FrontRunner as the best transportation project and best concrete project in the intermountain region for 2007. And the Associated General Contractors of Utah named FrontRunner the “Transportation Project of the Year.”

Scheduled to open this spring, the 44-mile FrontRunner commuter-rail line will run from Salt Lake City to Weber County.

In addition, the general contractors association named Tony Foster, a Salt Lake Commuter Rail Constructors contractor, as superintendent of the year in the highway/transportation division. Foster is the superintendent for UTA’s Gateway Hub-TRAX extension.
