Sellwood Bridge named Project of the Year

By DJC Staff, DJC Oregon - May 18, 2017

More than 600 people gathered at the Oregon Convention Center Thursday evening to help the Daily Journal of Commerce pay tribute to more than 30 outstanding projects completed in 2016 in Oregon or Southwest Washington.

The annual competition, now in its 23rd year, is regarded as one of the Pacific Northwest’s most popular building industry events. This year’s competition drew more than 95 entries in 10 categories, including new construction of private, public, mixed-use and multifamily buildings, infrastructure and transportation projects.

The replacement of the Sellwood Bridge in Portland was named the 2017 Project of the Year. The honor is given to a project that earns the highest overall score in the competition. In giving the project an almost perfect score, judges gave nods to the project team, including general contractor Slayden-Sundt Joint Venture, T.Y. Lin International Group and project owner Multnomah County, for an outstanding effort coordinating many components, using DMWESB subcontractors effectively and tapping innovative solutions to overcome challenges.
