Deh Cho Bridge Wins an Award at the 2013 International Bridge Conference


June 18, 2013

The Deh Cho Bridge, one of the longest continuous superstructures in the world, was awarded the prestigious Gustav Lindenthal Medal at the 2013 International Bridge Conference. Structal-Bridges fabricated 110 modified Warren girders for this one-kilometer-long cable-stayed bridge that’s located in Fort Providence in Canada’s Northwest Territories. The 4,200 tons of steel components were shipped by rail from the Canam Group plant in Quebec City, Quebec, to the bridge erection site over 5,000 kilometers away.

The Deh Cho Bridge replaces the ferry service, ice road and helicopter shuttle that were previously used to cross the Mackenzie River.

The Gustav Lindenthal Medal is awarded annually to recognize a recent outstanding achievement in bridge engineering that demonstrates a combination of technical and material innovation and success, positive community participation, aesthetic merit and harmony with the environment.
