One of our most decorated projects has earned another national honor.
Sellwood Bridge in Portland, Oregon has been named the top major span in the National Steel Bridge Alliance (NSBA) 2018 Prize Bridge Awards competition. The bridge, which was originally built in 1925, has a steel deck arch design with three arches supporting the deck of the main river spans. Sellwood is 1,976 feet long, including the main river spans and east and west approaches.
“Sundt has always had a great reputation as a bridge builder,” said Transportation Group Manager Jeff Williamson. “I think Sellwood takes us to a different level as a national contractor with structures and bridges over active waterways.”
Among its many honors, Sellwood recently earned the prestigious Associated General Contractors Construction Risk Partners Build America Award for best new highway and transportation project.
NSBA awards were presented to winners in nine categories: major span, long span, medium span, short span, movable span, reconstructed bridge, special purpose, integrated project delivery and technological advancement. Winning projects were selected based on innovation, aesthetics, economy, and design and engineering solutions by a jury of engineering and construction professionals.
Winning bridges and their project team members will be recognized at the NASCC: The Steel Conference/World Steel Bridge Symposium from April 11-13 in Baltimore. T.Y. Lin International Group was the designer and Slayden Constructors was our JV partner.
