Abstract: Construction of the San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor, winner of the 1997 ASCE Outstanding Civil Engineering Award of Merit, resulted in one of the most successful public/private partnerships in California. The 15-mile, $1.5 billion project opened to traffic nearly four months ahead of schedule in late 1996. The San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor (SJHTC) arose from an innovative partnership between government, the private sector and the driving public. The product of this partnership is a six-lane tollroad—with median space for future transportation improvements, including high occupancy vehicle lanes and transit options—at minimal direct cost to the taxpayer. The project won this year's Civil Engineering Achievement Award of Merit.
