Tim Bryant, VHB Maine Managing Director, was selected to receive the Partner Award from Acadia National Park (ACAD). This recognition from ACAD staff acknowledges and honors Tim for his 30 years of work at ACAD through VHB, and his dedication in support of the park and its mission. The award, presented to a consultant for the first time in its history, was granted to Tim at the Park’s annual employee awards and milestones celebration event in October.
Tim has provided design and management of transportation engineering projects on more than 40 projects at ACAD, with more than 20 projects completed in the last 10 years. His experience includes the 45-mile historic Carriage Roads and bridge network rehabilitation that was gifted to the park by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and design of the Frazer Creek Bridges and bike path on the Schoodic Peninsula. He also managed the design of the infrastructure improvements at the base of the Cadillac Summit Road to support the recently implemented reservation system for parking at the Cadillac Mountain summit, which has significantly reduced congestion and improved the visitor experience.
“Even though my name is on the plaque, this is really an award for VHB and all of the incredible team members who have helped deliver dozens of successful projects for Acadia National Park since 1993,” said Tim. “All of our team members, from those who conduct surveys and preliminary studies to those who prepare final construction documents, have played a critical role in helping achieve this honor. It’s an incredible opportunity to partner with the National Park Service at ACAD to help preserve and enhance a public treasure that is so unique in its natural and cultural offerings.”
