CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The end is in sight for work on the Harry S. Truman Parkway and an award just may motivate workers.

The Truman Parkway Phase Five won Project of the Year at a recent Pile Driving Contractors Association Convention.

It's only 2.8 miles, but most of that is over the Vernon River and marsh. The two bridges have a total of 1,700 piles. The piles end-on-end would stretch 18 miles. 

Officials said Phase Five is on schedule and expected to open to traffic in March 2014.
