Raleigh, NC (October 24, 2017) – PCL Construction in conjunction with our joint venture partner, Walsh Construction Co., is honored to receive the American Segmental Bridge Institute’s (ASBI) Award of Excellence for the Pearl Harbor Memorial (Q) Bridge in New Haven, Connecticut.

The award recognizes bridges that exemplify concrete segmental bridge design and construction excellence. The battleship-inspired bridge, crossing over the main harbor of the Quinnipiac River, is the first extradosed, prestressed concrete bridge built in the United States and only the third in North America. Extradosed bridges are a hybrid of conventional concrete segmental and cable-stayed bridges, and features that define the bridge include flat stay-cable angles smaller than 20 degrees and shorter cable support towers.

The Pearl Harbor Memorial (Q) Bridge was previously awarded the Top Bridges #2 ranking by Roads and Bridges magazine in 2013 and the Arthur Gruhn Excellence in Construction Award in the Large Project category by the Connecticut Department of Transportation.

Projects were judged based on the following criteria: innovation of design and/or construction, rapid construction, aesthetics and/or harmony with environment, cost competitiveness, and minimization of construction impact on the traveling public.
