Manchester, NH, United States, 2011/05/05 - CLD Consulting Engineers has been awarded the 2011 Structures Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of New Hampshire (ACEC-NH) for the Wiswall Bridge over the Lamprey River in Durham, NH - CLDengineers.com.
During a major flood event in the spring of 2006, the existing bridges at the crossing of Wiswall Road and the Lamprey River were damaged and had to be closed to traffic. CLD worked closely with the owner, the Town of Durham on this project in order to ensure the goals of the Town were met. This project involved the replacement of two single-span, single-lane bridges at the crossing of Wiswall Road over the Lamprey River.
Solutions to the unique challenges required structural, hydraulic, roadway, cultural and environmental considerations. The final design helped to preserve the character of the river, protect its beauty, and co-exist with the surrounding uses and rural development. This bridge was completed in June of 2010.
Awards will be presented at the ACEC-NH 2011 Engineering Excellence Awards Luncheon, May 12th at the Puritan Backroom in Manchester, NH.
