Among other things, Angy personally mentors a Colorado Mesa University sophomore and sponsors a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) related scholarship. Angy promotes STEM among students at her children’s elementary school and she also serves as the Ulteig liaison for the Colorado School of Mines Society of Women Engineers (SWE) chapter.
Innovative Transportation Solution of the Year: CDOT I-70 Bridge Replacement of F-13-S Minor
The WTS guidelines asked for projects that involved several women in important roles, including project manager, with descriptions of how those women successfully met and overcame challenges.
Ulteig’s project team had 10 women in total and three in leadership positions including: Andi Schmid, Director-Civil, as the Project Principal, Sarah Navarro, CDOT-Project Manager and Emily Wilfong, Collective Marketing-Public Involvement.
The realignment of I-70, accomplished with four distinct phasing shifts and multiple retaining walls, was a major roadway project and a highly technical bridge replacement project that increased transportation resiliency for the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the traveling community.
Angy Casamento and members of the I-70 Bridge Team picked up their trophies at the Jan. 26 WTS Annual Awards Luncheon. Other Ulteig folks were there to cheer them on.
