DBIA Board Member Roger Johnson Named ENR Top 25 Newsmaker
Engineering News-Record
"Boredom is an aspirational goal of mine," says Roger A. Johnson, deputy executive director of Los Angeles World Airports. The task of supervising over $7 billion in reconstruction and expansion efforts at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) since 2007 has left no time for sweet lethargy for Johnson and his team. But motivation to refurbish the airport's lost reputation as a world-class West Coast gateway helps.

Design-Build Delivers Superbowl XLVIII
DBIA
This weekend, the Super Bowl comes to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The stadium choice is noteworthy for two reasons. Not only is it the first open-roof stadium in a northern city to host the Super Bowl in decades, but the project was successfully delivered using design-build project delivery. In fact, the design-build team, led by Skanska USA, won a 2011 National Design-Build Award from DBIA. The stadium was a massive project with lots of challenges, but design-build project delivery helped ensure it was delivered on-budget and a full five months ahead of schedule.

    Putting a Lid on I-70, at a Cost of $1.8 Billion, Called 'An Iconic Project'
    Denver Business Journal
    What might be next for Interstate 70 through north Denver? We'll find out in the next few months, when the Colorado Department of Transportation rolls out its latest plan for the few miles just east of I-25. CDOT is proposing a $1.8 billion project that would sink two miles of I-70, between Brighton and Colorado boulevards, up to 40 feet underground, put a four-acre lid on top of the highway where it passes by Swansea Elementary School, and add two tolled lanes in either direction for that stretch of the highway. The project would tear down the 60-year-old elevated portion of I-70.
