IRVINE, Calif. - February 22, 2018
Juliet Su, resident of Aliso Viejo, recognized for representing the best of Orange County’s civil engineering professional society.
The Orange County Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE-OC) last week honored the Transportation Corridor Agencies’ (TCA) Juliet Su with the President’s Award at the branch’s annual awards ceremony.
Su, an Aliso Viejo resident, is the Design Corridor Manager for TCA, the government agency overseeing the operations of California’s largest network of toll roads – State Routes 73, 133, 241 and 261.
With more than 2,500 members in the Orange County Branch, ASCE-OC is the fourth largest branch within ASCE, representing an international profession that plans, designs, constructs and operates the built environment, while protecting and restoring the natural environment.
“The President’s Award is given to individuals who represent the best of ASCE,” said Josue Vaglienty, ASCE-OC’s Past President responsible for selecting and awarding this year’s recipient. “Juliet is not only a great engineer, be a consummate professional who dedicates her time to ASCE as a mentor to young engineers and volunteer of various committees while balancing family and work with the utmost highest degree.”
Su has worked at TCA since 2014 and has nearly 25 years of transportation engineering experience. As Design Corridor Manager she is responsible for the planning, design, and construction management for various projects throughout Orange County’s 51-miles of toll roads. She currently leads and manages a $17 million contract for the environmental and design phases of the proposed 241/91 Express Connector and managing the implementation of a new system-wide roadway sign program.
After accepting the award, Su shared her surprise and gratitude. “I’m thankful TCA allows me the opportunity to give back to an industry I love. My parents encouraged me to enter the field of engineering and 25 years later, I’m grateful to be part of a group who work toward growing the world around us.”
A Civil Engineering graduate of the University of California, Irvine, Su keeps busy out of the office with her husband, also a civil engineer, and two sons – Arthur 3 years old and Tristan 1 year old.
Su was honored at the February 15 ceremony at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana.
