Transurban-Fluor Receives Eakin Philanthropy Award

Dec 5, 2014

On November 21, 2014, Transurban-Fluor was recognized by the Fairfax County Park Foundation for their support of Park Authority programs and projects at the 2014 Elly Doyle Park Service Awards ceremony in Fairfax, Virginia.

Transurban-Fluor was awarded the Eakin Philanthropy Award, which recognizes significant financial or in-kind contributions; projects with broad, long term benefits to the community and visionary contributions; all of which create new programs or facilities and provide a new approach to addressing community needs.

Since 2009, the 495 and 95 Express Lanes Community Grants awarded to the Fairfax County Park Foundation have helped support a broad spectrum of agency efforts – such as the Wakefield Run Stream Restoration and improvements to the Gerry Connolly Cross County Trail. 

To date, the 495 and 95 Express Lanes grants have been awarded to 112 organizations in the Express Lanes corridor through the Community Grant Program.  The Express Lanes Community Grant Program supports organizations that sustain, enhance or protect the local environment and communities surrounding the Express Lanes corridor.

We take a sustainable approach to all operations, projects and business practices to create the best outcomes for communities.  Our sustainability highlights three focus areas – be good neighbors, use less and think long term.  As the operators of the 495 and 95 Express Lanes, we are long term partners in the Northern Virginia region.
