CG/LA Infrastructure Inc. announced they will honor the innovators behind this year’s most transformative global infrastructure initiatives at the Project of the Year Awards Ceremony during the 7th Global Infrastructure Leadership Forum on Feb. 27 in New York City.

“Our mission at CG/LA is to support the visionary infrastructure leaders that will create jobs, grow economies, and transform a country’s global competitiveness for the next 30 to 40 years,” said CG/LA Infrastructure President and CEO Norman F.
