OPAL and OCEA Award Winners
This list recognizes the members and projects from the ASCE Metropolitan Section that have received OPAL (Outstanding Projects and Leaders) awards from the Society. First established in 1999, the Lifetime Achievement Award honors outstanding civil engineering leaders that have made lifetime achievements in design, construction, government, education, and management.
Since 1960, ASCE has awarded the Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement (OCEA) to recognize an exemplary civil engineering project that illustrates superior civil engineering skills and represents a significant contribution to civil engineering progress and society. Honoring an overall project rather than an individual, the OCEA award recognizes the contributions of many engineers.
