Prince George’s County Receives 2020 Maryland Quality Asphalt Pavement Awards for the Tucker Road and Palmer Road Projects
LARGO, MD – The Prince George’s County Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) is the recipient of the 2020 Maryland Quality Asphalt Pavement Awards for the Tucker Road and Palmer Road projects. The completed projects addressed some of the pressing infrastructure, pedestrian and bicycle safety concerns in Ft. Washington.
“We are Prince George’s Proud that the County has received these prestigious awards,” said Prince George’s County Executive, Angela Alsobrooks. “The completion of these projects exemplifies the work ethics of the men, women and heroes who continue to work on the front lines in the County.”
Receiving the award during the COVID-19 pandemic is especially notable, as DPW&T crews have effectively and efficiently continued to work on roadway and safety projects. These efforts are crucial to maintaining a safe transportation system and achieving the Vision Zero Prince George’s goal of eliminating serious injuries and fatalities.
During the summer of 2020, DPW&T completed the Tucker Road – Saint Barnabas Road to Palmer Road and Palmer Road – Tucker Road ending at Della Lane roadway improvement projects. The work included stormwater management improvements, constructing sidewalks, curbs and gutters.
“We are pleased that pedestrians and bikers are able to safely access civic and recreational facilities such as the Tucker Road Community Center and the Ice Rink Sport Complex.” said DPW&T Director, Terry Bellamy.
Due to the pandemic, the award will not be presented in a traditional award ceremony by the Maryland Asphalt Association, but the projects are being recognized as good pavement work by the Association. It is expected that the awards will be creatively presented at a future date. DPW&T is humbly honored to be recognized by the Maryland Asphalt Association and is looking forward to continuing to safely work on projects throughout the County.
