Milton E. Proby Parkway Named Project of the Year
Wednesday, January 09, 2013

The Colorado chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA) has named the recently completed Milton E. Proby Parkway as the Project of the Year. The project turned a two mile, two lane road into a four lane divided Parkway, with three bridges added to assist with less restricted traffic movements through a major intersection in the City.

“The recognition of Milton E. Proby Parkway by the State Chapter of the APWA as the 2012 Project of the Year is a great honor for the City of Colorado Springs and a testament to the tremendous regional benefit that the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority provides.  This new expressway forms the ‘Gateway to the City of Colorado Springs’ creating a high-speed link between the airport, I-25 and downtown Colorado Springs. The project partnerships included working with the neighborhoods, businesses, Colorado Springs Airport, Colorado Department of Transportation, and El Paso County,” said City Public Works Director Helen Migchelbrink.

The award will be presented at the Annual Awards Luncheon on Monday, January 28th at the Denver Marriot South. Milton E. Proby Parkway is also featured on the cover of the January 2013 issue of the Colorado Public Works Journal.
