Thirteen Steel Bridge Projects Earn National Recognition

Thirteen incredible steel bridge projects have recently been recognized in the 2014 Prize Bridge Awards Competition. The competition is held every two years by the National Steel Bridge Alliance (NSBA), and recognizes innovative design and engineering achievements in structural steel bridge projects throughout the country.

The winning bridges and the teams behind them were recognized at NASCC in Toronto last month. All the bridges must be located in the United States and must have been completed and opened to traffic between May 1, 2011 and September 30, 2013.

  • Long span - Longest span equal to or greater than 250 ft. but less than 400 ft.
