Edwin Mojena Receives Florida Prudential Productivity Award

The Prudential Productivity Awards program annually honors Florida state employees who strive to enhance the delivery of state services by developing and implementing innovative and cost-efficient improvements throughout Florida. This 28-year government improvement initiative is chaired by Florida’s Lt. Governor and is co-sponsored by Florida TaxWatch, the Florida Council of 100, and the state of Florida. Since 1989, more than 16,000 nominations have been received, and award winners have created over $9.2 billion in cost savings or efficiency gains for Florida taxpayers and businesses. This year, the 28th annual awards ceremony was held on Wednesday, June 21, and Lochner Vice President and Senior Project Manager, Edwin Mojena, PE, was among the 203 individuals and teams recognized.

Edwin, along with project team members from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), received a plaque award for their efforts on the Biscayne Boulevard Pedestrian Crosswalk and Safety Project. This design-bid-build project improved pedestrian and driver safety on the high-volume Biscayne Boulevard (SR 5) corridor between 13th and 78th Streets in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Edwin and the Lochner Team prepared design plans and construction documentation for six new midblock pedestrian crossings along the route, each with flashing beacons and push buttons, and for a new crosswalk on the west leg of the SR 5/54th Street intersection. Lochner’s design plans also included upgrading the signing and pavement markings at existing pedestrian crossings. The Lochner and FDOT project team not only improved pedestrian and driver safety, but also created more than $64K in overall cost savings for the state of Florida. The design for this project was completed in 2015, and the construction was completed in the summer of 2016.
