Bridges Win Awards
April 26, 2007

What began during an effort to meet the public’s expectations
for a new landmark bridge in Toledo, Ohio, has become a revolutionary innovation in the design of cable-stayed bridges. The nationally recognized cable-stayed bridge cradle system makes it possible to increase the size of cable stays, thus creating longer bridge spans that can be constructed efficiently. Created by FIGG Bridge Engineers, the system has been honored with the 2007 Charles Pankow Award for Innovation, given by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Civil Engineering Forum for Innovation (CEFI). Presented recently at ASCE’s eighth annual Outstanding Projects and Leaders (OPAL) awards gala at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C., the Pankow Award recognizes the contribution of organizations working collaboratively to demonstrate innovative approaches to design, materials use or the construction process.

The Golden Gate Bridge Seismic Retrofit Phase II, South Approach Structures Project has been honored with the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) 2007 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement (OCEA) award. Presented recently at the eighth annual Outstanding Projects and Leaders (OPAL) awards gala at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C., the OCEA award recognizes the project’s significant contribution to the civil engineering profession and its local community.
