2016 Grand Award - Stanley Consultants

Stanley Consultants, Inc.
Arizona Department of Transportation
US 60 (Grand Avenue) / SR 303L Traffic Interchange

Motorists driving over the new traffic interchange probably don't know they are crossing one of the most unusual hybrid bridges in Arizona. Rarely is a bridge built using two structural systems - this one combines three: Cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete box girders, precast/pre-tensioned girders, and post tensioned cast-in-place elements. And, at 197 feet wide, the bridge is also one of the widest un-jointed bridge decks in the world.

“Thank You” Stanley Consultants, Inc. for this innovative hybrid approach and value engineering recommendations which resulted in saving one million dollars.
