Wekiva River Crossing Wins 2023 ASBI Bridge Award of Excellence
Superior Construction’s Wekiva River Crossing has received the American Segmental Bridge Institute’s 2023 Bridge Award of Excellence in the bridge over water category. The crossing is the centerpiece of Superior’s multi-award-winning Wekiva Parkway Section 6 project.
Each of the Wekiva River Crossing’s three complex 2,068-foot-long bridges included cast-in-place (CIP) concrete segmental spans totaling 880 feet with a 360-foot main span. They were constructed from the top down to eliminate work in the water, protect the surrounding environment during construction, and provide undisturbed and safe habitats for wildlife after completion. The project proves responsible engineering can integrate with sustainable development and sets a precedent for other regions facing similar challenges.
The biennial ASBI Bridge Awards of Excellence recognize owners and builders of bridges that exemplify concrete segmental bridge design and construction excellence. Winners were chosen by a panel of distinguished bridge engineers selected by the ASBI Awards Committee. Each bridge was judged on the following criteria:
- Innovation of Design and/or Construction
- Rapid Construction
- Aesthetics and/or Harmony with the Environment
- Cost Competitiveness
- Minimization of Construction Impact on the Traveling Public
The ASBI Bridge Awards of Excellence will be presented during the ASBI convention in Tucson, Arizona, November 6-8, 2023.
