Eric Johnson won the award after being named the Mississippi Valley Division Hard Hat Award winner in January.
The award is given out each year to recognize excellence in construction quality management by its construction field personnel. Johnson was chosen as the recipient over contenders from 10 U-S Army Corps of Engineers divisions across the globe.
Johnson was honored for his actions as construction representative in the Lock and Dam 3 Project Office in Red Wing.
While there he was responsible for contract administration for both the navigation improvement project and the lower embankment project.
Both contracts were valued at nearly $47,000,000.
Johnson will be honored in Washington D-C in August.
