New Jersey received honors for the following projects:
- Route 72 Manahawkin Bay Bridges Project Contract 4, which was named best Quality of Life/Community Development
- Route 280, Route 21 Interchange Improvements Project, which was named best Operations Excellence
The overall project included the construction of a new 2,400 foot-long bridge. In addition to constructing a new parallel bridge and reconstructing the existing bridge, the project also rehabilitated three trestle bridges and included environmental mitigation on Cedar Bonnet Island.
For the $91-million Contract 4, George Harms Construction Co. used an innovative approach to reconstruct the Old Causeway Bridge that saved time and money, and resulted in reopening the bridge a year early.
The project built four new bridges, rehabilitated two additional bridges within the interchange, and upgraded existing infrastructure, such as highway lighting, traffic signals, signing, and landscaping. The project also eliminated two direct ramps onto I-280, and constructed shoulders to widen the lanes.
