Both tied for the Project of the Year Award given by the Slag Cement Association. Slag is the cement used to build the footing of the bridge and road surface.
The vice president of the bridge design company says it’s made from re-purposed material, and the innovation that went into the bridge is a big reason for the award.
“This project will be winning lots of awards in the engineering, architecture community, and I think the size of it, the magnitude of the project is probably why it’s being recognized by the Slag Cement Association,” said Guy Hakanson, OBEC Vice President.
OBEC says part of the team includes Knife River, Hamilton Construction and Slayden Construction.
