Michigan Transportation Asset Management Council Honors Michigan Local Technical Assistance Program Director
A Michigan Tech professor has been recognized by a state-wide transportation organization.
The Michigan Transportation Asset Management Council (TAMC) has honored Tim Colling (CEE/MTTI) with the 2016 TAMC Carmine Palombo Individual Award.
The award was presented by TAMC Chair Joanna I. Johnson at the annual TAMC Fall Conference on Oct. 13 in Marquette.
In 2015, the TAMC renamed the Individual Achievement Award in honor of Palombo for his years of service and dedication to the TAMC representing the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments.
Colling acknowledged that while the honor is called an individual award, it reflects the work and dedication of the entire team at Michigan Tech.
When told that Colling was going to be receiving the award that carries his name, Palombo said, “I can think of no more deserving person than Tim Colling to be recognized for all of his work in assisting the TAMC to get to where they are today.”
Palombo further added, “His efforts and leadership have simply lifted the practice and promotion of asset management all across Michigan.”
Colling worked as a civil engineering consultant for 10 years prior to starting work at Michigan Tech’s Center for Technology and Training (CTT).
In 2010, Colling assumed the responsibilities of director, including leadership of the Michigan Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP).
Colling and his team at CTT provide basic and advanced training on a wide array of topics to support the management of transportation systems.
