“For the third year in a row, the PWKP team is proudly supporting more than a dozen of our bridge-replacement districts by donating 180 Thanksgiving turkeys to organizations that support those most in need,” said Matt Girard, Project Executive for PWKP.

“It’s always been important to the PWKP team to demonstrate gratitude and appreciation to our project communities. We’re thankful to live and work where we do, and we hope this year’s turkey donations provide an opportunity for those less fortunate to also be thankful this year. From everyone who works on the Pennsylvania Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving” said Ed Dice, PWKP Project Delivery Manager.
