T.Y. Lin International Wins 2017 ACEC Honor Award for Sellwood Bridge Replacement

Maribel Castillo Executive Director, T.Y. Lin International - April 26, 2017

T.Y. Lin International (TYLI), a globally recognized, full-service infrastructure consulting firm, announces that the Sellwood Bridge Replacement project (Sellwood Bridge) in Portland, Oregon, has received an Honor Award in the 2017 Engineering Excellence Awards competition of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC). TYLI served as Prime Consultant, Final Design, on the fast-track project, working closely with the Project Owner, Multnomah County, design subconsultant CH2M, and Construction Manager/General Contractor, Slayden/Sundt Joint Venture. The 2017 Honor Award was presented to the TYLI team at the ACEC Engineering Excellence Awards Gala on April 25, 2017, in Washington, D.C.

The Sellwood Bridge across the Willamette River opened to traffic on February 29, 2016, and replaces a deteriorating fixed span structure built in 1925. The 1,976-foot-long bridge, 1,275 feet of which is a steel deck arch, features three arch spans that support the 63- to 90-foot-wide deck of the main river spans. The new, seismically resilient bridge carries two 12-foot-wide vehicular lanes, two 6.5-foot-wide bike lanes/emergency shoulders, and two 12-foot-wide shared-use sidewalks. TYLI also designed the bridge to accommodate future streetcar service.
