Golden Spike 150th Anniversary Symposium

Hosted by American Society of Civil Engineers

The History & Heritage Committee of the American Society of Civil Engineers is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the completion of the first Transcontinental Railroad in 1869. Connecting the East and the West with fast and easy transportation for the first time, its completion is considered by many as the most significant civil engineering project of the 19th Century.
