Bill Wilson, editor of ROADS & BRIDGES magazine, received the 2003 Robert F. Boger award for his editorial "Can they cut the mustard?" in which he reviewed the implications of the Nov. 5, 2002, election referendums on highway construction funding.


The Construction Writers Association confers this annual award for editorial excellence and achievement in construction journalism. Wilson's column detailed the results of state ballot measures to increase funding and assessed the American public's willingness to pay more for infrastructure improvement. The editorial appeared in the December 2002 issue of ROADS & BRIDGES. CWA winners will be honored at an awards dinner on May 1 in Washington, D.C.


ROADS & BRIDGES magazine, published by Scranton Gillette Communications, Des Plaines, Ill., is in its 97th year of print. In 2000, the magazine was nationally recognized as the most improved business-to-business magazine. In 2002, Allen Zeyher, associate editor, received the Boger award for his feature article on the reconstruction of Chicago's Wacker Drive. In 2001, Wilson won the Boger award for his editorial on work-zone safety.


ROADS & BRIDGES magazine provides pertinent business-to-business information to 65,000 contractors, engineers and government personnel involved in street, highway, bridge, tunnel, viaduct and airport construction projects.
