The KC Streetcar project is ending 2016 with yet another award to add to its collection since its launch in May. Engineering News-Record has honored the KC Streetcar project with the ‘2016 Best Project’ award in the Midwest Airport/Transit category. The ENR Regional Best Projects Awards are dedicated to honoring the best construction projects and the organizations that designed and built them in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Projects compete in 20 specialized categories and are judged by independent juries of industry leaders in design and construction from each of ENR’s 10 regional editions.
