Burns & McDonnell Projects Supporting Electric Vehicle Infrastructure and Stormwater Control Measures Win ACEC Awards

KANSAS CITY, Missouri — The American Council of Engineering Companies of Kansas has awarded Burns & McDonnell two engineering excellence awards.

Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) Stormwater Control Measure Manual: In 2019, KDOT was issued a new Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit requiring the agency to implement a stormwater management program that includes six minimum control measures. KDOT determined that for long-term success of stormwater control measures implementation in its linear projects, they needed a custom design manual that is focused on stormwater practices already familiar to roadway designers and could be feasibly maintained by KDOT staff. Burns & McDonnell worked with KDOT to develop the manual, now in use statewide.

Kansas National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Plan: To meet funding requirements of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), IKE Transportation Partners, a joint venture of Garver and Burns & McDonnell, developed a strategic statewide Transportation Electrification Program (TEP) for KDOT, oversaw the implementation of a TEP, and supported KDOT’s existing EV Working Groups. The Charge Up Kansas National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan provides a framework for developing a statewide charging network focused on designated Alternative Fuel Corridors and was developed based on extensive public engagement.

“Both projects demonstrate the success of a long-term relationship between KDOT and Burns & McDonnell,” says Mike DeBacker, vice president and leader of the Transportation Group. “Our commitment to their success and innovation through collaboration has created award-winning projects.”

The projects show KDOT’s commitment to innovation in the electric vehicle space and the fulfillment of permit requirements for its projects.
