Sixteen steel bridge projects were recently honored in the American Institute of Steel Construction’s 2018 Prize Bridge Awards competition, with the Sellwood Bridge in Portland, Oregon, and the Greenfield Arch Bridge in Pittsburgh, among the National Award winners.

Awards are presented in nine categories, covering a variety of bridge types: major span, long span, medium span, short span, moveable span, reconstructed bridge, special purpose, integrated project delivery and technological advancement. Commendations were also given to projects that exemplified accelerated bridge construction and sustainability.

Sixteen steel bridge projects were recently honored in the American Institute of Steel Construction’s 2018 Prize Bridge Awards competition, with the Sellwood Bridge in Portland, Oregon, (pictured) and the Greenfield Arch Bridge in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, among the National Award winners.

This year’s National Award winners otherwise include: medium span, Colville River Nigliq Bridge ( Nuiqsut, Alaska); short span, US Route 340 (Waynesboro, Virginia); moveable bridge, Gut Bridge (South Bristol, Maine); reconstructed bridge, RFK Bridge—Manhattan Approach Ramps (New York City); and special purpose, Peter Courtney Minto Island Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge (Salem, Oregon).

Special awards went to the Rouchleau Mine Bridge (Virginia, Minnesota), for integrated project delivery, and the Folded Steel Plate Girder Bridge (Muskingum County, Ohio), for technological advancement.

Merit awards were presented for Hulton Bridge (Pittsburgh), a major span; Sewalls Falls Bridge (Concord, New Hampshire), medium span; Broadway Avenue Bridge (Boise, Idaho), short span; Fort Street Bridge (Detroit), moveable span; BNSF Railway Company Bridge 482.1 (West Memphis, Arkansas), reconstructed; and Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Moose Run Golf Course (Anchorage, Alaska), special purpose.

All structures were opened to traffic between May 1, 2015 and Sept. 30, 2017.

“Selecting award-winning bridges in the 2018 competition was more challenging than ever,” said Michael Culmo, PE, CME Engineering, lead judge. “Submissions came from all across the country, including Hawaii and Alaska, and represented numerous structure types, construction methods and project delivery models. Our recognized bridges included bridges that extended the boundaries of steel design and steel bridge construction, and others that showed efficient use of steel as a material of choice for bridges.”

The AISC is hosting its annual World Steel Bridge Symposium April 11-13 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
