ENR Mountain States magazine previously announced our 2020 Best Projects award winners (see my editor’s blog on this website). Now, after tabulating final results and polling our judges, we are ready to announce the finalists for Project of the Year in both the Intermountain area (Utah, Idaho and Montana) and Colorado, Wyoming and the Dakotas.
The voting for Project of the Year was close, as always, but a handful of projects emerged as front runners. To be considered for this honor, a project had to also be a winner (first place) in its individual category and receive a first-place vote from more than one judge and at least two second-place votes from others.
The winners of this award will be announced at our virtual Best Projects award ceremonies in October.
Here are the finalists in alphabetical order.
