Project Updates
  • 2/2/2016 - The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) has awarded the Town of Hilton Head Island and its engineering consultant, Infrastructure Consulting & Engineering, PLLC of Charleston, South Carolina, the Engineering Excellence Award for the Mathews Drive – Marshland Road Roundabout Project. ACEC was formed in 1909 and represents our state and nation’s engineering industry. This project was the culmination of years of planning, engineering, land acquisition, and permitting, and has been extremely successful, alleviating traffic congestion, avoiding impacts to surrounding natural resources, and suffering no severe traffic accidents since construction was completed in April, 2015.
