Pond Eddy Bridge Awarded Outstanding New or Reconstructed Long Span Bridge

May 2, 2019 Harrisburg, Pennsylvania – SAI is proud to announce that our team received the ABCD-Susquehanna Chapter’s Outstanding New or Reconstructed Long Span Bridge Award for the Pond Eddy Bridge on April 29, 2019 at the 15th Annual Bridge Awards Banquet in Harrisburg, PA.  SAI Project Manager Greg Soule, PE (pictured below) gave a presentation of the unique design and construction challenges and stakeholder coordination necessary to replace  the 115-year old, 504-ft long, two-span, pin connected, Pennsylvania (Petit) thru-truss bridge over the Delaware River between New York and Pennsylvania. The bridge was replaced with a 506-ft long, two-span, steel Pratt truss bridge while keeping the river open for recreational boaters, maintaining access to the community of Pond Eddy, PA, documenting historical findings and preserving the natural and aesthetic qualities of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River National Park.  SAI would like to thank PennDOT Project Manager Susan Williams (pictured above), PennDOT District 4-0, NYSDOT, FHWA and the National Park Service for their guidance and expertise throughout the project; contractor DA Collins; and design team partners Skelly and Loy, Dawood, McCormick Taylor, Navarro & Wright and IAS.
