PowerForward DuPage member contractor, Aldridge Electric, has been honored by the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) with a 2018 NECA Project Excellence Award in the Transportation & Infrastructure Category for their work on the new Washington-Wabash CTA Elevated Station for the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA). NECA established the Project Excellence Award in 2017 to showcase the exceptional work being performed by its members throughout the country.

Aldridge’s project scope required the installation of temporary power, communications, and signal systems to allow demolition of the Madison and Randolph station houses. Following demolition, Aldridge completed the removal and replacement of approximately 1,400 feet of 3rd rail to accommodate for the new rail alignment, new architectural lighting, communication and security systems, new traffic signal systems at Washington/Wabash and Randolph/Wabash intersections, and new underpass street lighting.

Aldridge Electric will be recognized, along with this year’s other winners, during NECA’s annual convention in Philadelphia September 29-October 2, 2018. For more information on the award and a list of other winners, please visit www.ProjectExcellenceAwards.com
