Paragon Partners Attends The IRWA 57th Annual Region 2 Fall Forum & Education Refresher
Paragon Partners attended the IRWA 57th Annual Region 2 Fall Forum & Education Refresher in College Station, Texas. This year’s theme was the changing climate for the right-of-way industry as a whole. Paragon’s Texas team, Norm Henenberg, Megan Redfield, Allen Armstrong, and David Sinclair attended workshops that included Appraisal Contracts, The Role of Project Manager, Relocation Projects, Intersection of Surveying- SUE & engineering, and more. Although, the workshops and seminars attended were highly valuable, the potential client relationships that were developed were deemed even more invaluable. The Young Professional social event helped develop and flourish important relationships among fellow industry professionals on how to better communicate with landowners and the press, in face of difficult projects.
Celebrating Our 26th Anniversary~
Happy 4th of July!
Paragon Partners would like to wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July!

San Gabriel Trench Project Wins Statewide Top Honor
For over 20 years, Paragon Partners is proud to have worked on many incredible ACE/SGVCOG projects as part of the Right of Way Team, including the San Gabriel Trench project which was recently awarded the overall Project of the Year at the California Transportation Foundations (CTF).
The 2.2-mile project was the largest public works project in the history of the City of San Gabriel and the largest project in the $1.7 billion Alameda Corridor-East (ACE) Construction Authority grade separation program overseen by the Capital Projects and Construction Committee of the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (SGVCOG).
The project resulted in the lowering of a 1.4-mile section of railroad track in a 30-foot-deep, 65-foot-wide trench through the City of San Gabriel with roadway bridges constructed at four hazardous at-grade crossings and railroad bridges built over two storm channels. The trench improves safety by eliminating the potential for crossing collisions, delays for nearly 90,000 motorists each day, reduces emissions from idling vehicles and allows emergency responders to respond more quickly on both sides of the tracks. Construction required the excavation of more than 500,000 cubic yards of soil removed via 33,000 dump truck trips and the pouring of 6,500 truckloads of concrete to build the trench walls and floor and roadway bridge structures.
This is the second award for the San Gabriel Trench Project.
