One of TPD’s clients, Paone Ventures LLC, was presented with the Montgomery Award for Excellence in Planning and Design for their Cold Point Manor development in Whitemarsh Township, Montgomery County, PA. One of the key elements for this development was the improvement of the offset Butler Pike intersections with Flourtown Road and Plymouth Road.
Traffic Planning and Design, Inc. designed a project wherein Flourtown Road was realigned to intersect Butler Pike directly opposite Plymouth Road, and the resulting four-way intersection was signalized. This significant improvement was the culmination of years of coordination between Montgomery County, Whitemarsh Township, Plymouth Township, PennDOT, Paone Ventures LLC, and of course TPD. This reconstructed intersection has met with widespread public accolades since its completion in 2009. The contribution of the intersection improvements to the project’s Montgomery Award is described in the event brochure: “This project demonstrates how successful public/private partnerships can result in a well-designed development while accomplishing important community improvements.”
Traffic Planning and Design, Inc. (TPD) has won a Pennsylvania state-level Pro Patria Award. The award is given by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense committee, to employers who provide outstanding support to National Guard and Reserve employees. The Pro Patria Award is the U.S. Government’s highest state-level award.
This award is special since only members of the National Guard and Reserve or their family members are eligible to nominate their employers. Employee and Pennsylvania Army National Guard Major Frank Montgomery nominated TPD for their support of his nine month active duty mission as the Logistics Officer preparing the 55th Armored Brigade Combat Team for their current mobilization in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. TPD also supported Major Montgomery with his recent liaison officer role with the District of Columbia National Guard as part of the 57th Presidential Inauguration.
Kevin L. Johnson, President and founder of TPD, recently received the ESGR Pro Patria Award on behalf of TPD. The Pro Patria Award is presented annually by each ESGR State Committee to one small, one large and one public sector employer in their State.
To date, TPD has already received the Patriot Award and the Seven Seals Award for support of Major Montgomery’s deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, and is automatically nominated for the 2013 ESGR Freedom Award. The ESGR Freedom Award is the highest recognition given by the U.S. Government to employers for their outstanding support of employees serving in the National Guard and military Reserve units.
TPD strives to provide the greatest support to their Guard and Reserve employees through their leadership and company policies.
