CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 
presented the Florida Project of the Year award on Tuesday to the 
crawlerway system evaluation team at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in 

The Cape Canaveral branch of the ASCE nominated the team for its 
project, the Crawlerway Evaluation to Support a Heavy-Lift Program. 
The crawlerway is a 130-foot-wide, specialty-built roadway between 
Kennedy's Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), where rockets and 
spacecraft are prepared for flight, and Launch Pad 39A and 39B.

The team's more than two-year evaluation confirmed the crawlerway 
system would be able to support the weight of moving the agency's 
future heavy-lift rockets and potential commercial vehicles from the 
VAB to the launch pads. 

"Putting all of the different entities together has resulted in an 
outstanding product that the center and the program can stand firmly 
on," said Justin Junod, project manager for the team.

The award honors the team's outstanding engineering efforts in 
research, design, construction and management, recognizing the 
complexity of multi-agency coordination and cost-effective 
engineering advances. For more information on the American Society of
