WOMEN WEDNESDAY: THE LADIES OF CINCINNATI STREETCAR

In honor of Women's History Month, CincyWhimsy is highlighting some of the fascinating stories about Cincinnati ladies in a series, Women Wednesday. For National Women in Construction Week, we're featuring some of the ladies who are working on the Cincinnati Streetcar project.


Laura Collins (Messer Project Manager), Sarah Perrino (City of Cincinnati Field Engineer),  
Delores Williams (Prus Cement Finisher), and Vercinia Warren (Messer Carpenter)


From design conception and engineering management to the daily construction work taking place along the streets of Over-the-Rhine and Downtown, these four women have been involved in the project every step of the way.

The focus of Women In Construction Week is to highlight construction as a viable career choice for women and to show that females are a visible component of the industry. Women comprise up to 12% of the construction workforce from owners, project managers, engineers, craftspeople, general contractors, subcontractors, administrative personnel, attorneys, insurers and lenders. Local Women In Construction chapters are celebrating the week through community service projects, jobsite tours, membership drives, student activities, hands-on workshops, fundraisers and outreach programs.

  1. It's a tough, tough job to be a woman in construction. Even in today's world. I commend these women. Love seeing old co-workers Laura and Vercinia!
