ACEC Engineering Excellence 2017: Sellwood Bridge Replacement in Portland, OR

Posted by Infra on Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

2017 ACEC Engineering Excellence Awards

T.Y. Lin International of Beaverton, OR has earned an Honor Award for exemplary engineering achievement in the American Council of Engineering Companies’ (ACEC) 50th annual Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) for the Sellwood Bridge Replacement in Portland, OR.

A picturesque, three-arch bridge replaces a deteriorating 1925-era structure that was threatened by an encroaching hillside. The project team incorporated advanced seismic resilient bridge components and innovative landslide mitigation systems to stabilize the hillside. They also trimmed a year off the construction schedule by shifting the original steel deck truss to one side using hydraulic jacks, allowing the bridge to remain in service during construction. The new bridge carries two vehicular lanes, two bike lanes, two shared-use sidewalks, and will accommodate future streetcar service.
