Bergeron Land Development constructed the 2.25 mile, bi-directional, oval track with adjacent straightaways extending into turnaround areas on each side of the oval track, and a total of four toll equipment buildings and four toll gantries.

The overall winner in the Specialty Construction Project category was the world’s first guitar-shaped hotel at the Hard Rock property in Hollywood Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

“No doubt our Bergeron Land Development team rocks, but its hard to upstage a 400-foot-tall guitar,” said Bergeron Land Development Founder and President Ronald M. Bergeron, Sr.. “In the long run, the Bergeron family takes extreme pride in knowing our work will impact transportation technology for years to come.”
