Written by 

The 10,000-member International Right Of Way Association has named the Utah Transit Authority winner of its 2010 Infrastructure Project of the Year award.

In announcing the award on Wednesday, the association described UTA’s Frontlines Program of Projects as “one of the biggest, most aggressive and successful rail expansion projects in the country.”

The association noted that earlier this year “Forbes Magazine singled out Salt Lake City as the best city in the U.S. for commuters and credits the state’s investment in transportation infrastructure for the top ranking.”

UTA’s Frontlines Program was No. 1 among the top 10 infrastructure projects picked for recognition. Also on the list is the Central Puget Sound Regional Transit Authority Link Light Rail.
