Alpha Receives Silver Award

October 22nd, 2012


Alpha Associates, Incorporated was recently awarded a Silver Award in the Transportation Category at the 2012 West Virginia Engineering Excellence Award Competition that took place on October 22, 2012 in Charleston.
Alpha has offices in both Morgantown and Martinsburg, West Virginia.

The award was presented to Alpha for its design of the Winchester and Western Railroad Rail spur and Bridge in Martinsburg, West Virginia. Alpha's design included a 1.25 mile rail spur and 205 foot train bridge. The project was born from cement manufacturing company ESSROC and their need to find a more efficient means of transporting coal
into their facility and finished product to their customers.

The project was designed using traditional engineering methods, with a modern high tech result. With an emphasis on sustainability and environmental stewardship, the removal of more than 28,000 trucks from local roadways is what makes this project a win-win. The long term impact will benefit the client, the manufacturing sector, as well as residents of the surround area.

Mr. Phil Light with Winchester and Western Railroad explained "The completed project, as well as the design team from Alpha Associates, far exceeded our expectations, as well as those of the citizens of the Martinsburg area and the manufacturing community."

Staff from both offices were involved in the project.
