Outstanding Engineering - 2016 ACEC National Recognition Winners

ACEC 2016 National Recognition Award Winner:

Firm Name: HNTB Corporation
Project Name: SunRail Phase 1
Project Location: DeBary to Orlando, Florida
Client Name: Florida Department of Transportation District 5

Since its opening in May 2014, SunRail has proved a practical alternative to I-4, the region’s main thoroughfare. The initial 31 miles of Phase 1 of the SunRail Commuter Rail System serve passengers at 12 different stations across eight different cities in Central Florida, from DeBary in the north to Sand Lake Road in the south. On average, 3,700 Central Floridians ride the train per day.

Phase 1 work included construction of track, signals, crossings, bridges, stations with associated parking lots, security systems, and an operations center. Phase 2 is scheduled to begin shortly, connecting an additional four communities to the southern terminus.
