An expert in transportation funding, Ms. McAdam has been responsible for the planning, funding, and delivery of many large transportation projects such as the I-80 Bottleneck Widening in Roseville, SR-65 Lincoln Bypass, I-80/SR-65 Interchange Improvements,  I-80/Sierra College Boulevard Interchange, I-80/Douglas Boulevard Interchange, Placer Parkway and numerous transit and rail projects.

"It is an honor to be recognized by this very important professional organization," said McAdam.  "With the recent successful completion of the Highway 65 Lincoln Bypass, this award is another major highlight of my career."

Ms. McAdam has served as the Executive Director of the PCTPA since 1998 and as Executive Director of the South Placer Regional Transportation Authority since its formation in 2001.  Ms. McAdam previously served as Senior Planner for PCTPA in the early 1990s and also held management positions with the City of San Jose and Butte County Association of Governments.  She also holds a professional certification from the American Institute of Certified Planners.
