2017 Highlights.

Thanks to the more than 420 guests who attended ESWP’s 133rd Annual Banquet on February 15, the event was a big success.  Held at the Westin Hotel, the evening was filled with good food and fellowship, uplifting messages and entertaining presentations.  Congratulations to all of the award recipients in our Project of the Year program as well as ESWP’s Engineer of the Year, Jim Foringer of PennDOT District 11-0, and a special recognition for Dr. Deb Lange upon receiving ESWP’s Metcalf Award, the first female to do so in the history of the 53-year old award.
