W. Griffin Sullivan, an engineer working in The Mississippi Department of Transportation’s Central Materials Lab, recently received an award for a design and construction approach to help build better highways. He co-authored a paper that won the annual Best Practice Ready Paper Award from the Transportation Research Board. The paper, written by Sullivan, Brennan Anderson and Dr. Isaac L. Howard, details a better method to design and control construction of base layers of highways. Sullivan, the lead author on the awarded paper, is a master’s degree graduate of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Mississippi State University and is working part-time on his PhD in Civil Engineering at MSU remotely while working full-time at MDOT.
