Christopher Sheridan ’84

Christopher Sheridan ’84 (civil engineering technology) was a co-recipient of the Douglas Zefting Memorial Award presented by the American Public Works Association in January in Rochester. The award is presented each year to a public works official who demonstrates outstanding and meritorious achievements. Sheridan, who works in the Rochester region of the New York State Department of Transportation, was instrumental in designing a program that allows local municipalities to administer transportation projects using federal funding, a task only done by the state in the past.

Sheridan and a colleague have helped local governments in Rochester and the seven surrounding counties to improve their transportation networks, working on more than $80 million worth of projects.
