SANDPOINT -- The American Council of Engineering Companies of Idaho has selected the U.S. Highway 95 realignment project in northern Idaho as the winner of the 2013 Engineering Excellence Awards competition for transportation.

The $112 million Sand Creek Byway was completed in July. It was designed by URS Corporation, and Parsons RCI served as the project's general contractor.

Parsons Group President Todd Wagner tells the Bonner County Daily Bee in a story published Saturday that he's proud the council recognized the Sand Creek Byway, and he also congratulated the Idaho Transportation Department and the entire project team.

Parsons built the 2.1-mile-long project around the city of Sandpoint.
