Eighteen bridges have earned national recognition in the 2012 Prize Bridge Awards Competition. Conducted by the National Steel Bridge Alliance (NSBA), the program honors outstanding and innovative steel bridges constructed in the U.S.

 

The awards are presented in several categories: major span, long span, medium span, short span, movable span, reconstructed, special purpose, accelerated bridge construction and sustainability. This year’s winners range from a pair of charming New England pedestrian bridges to the longest cable-stayed bridge in the U.S.

 

All of this year’s winners are featured in the June issue of MSC (available now!), with detailed project descriptions and photographs of each; you can read the article here.
