EEA Update: International Bridge Technologies, Inc.’s, The Pitt River Bridge, Wins 2011 Engineering Excellence Merit Award


A Merit Award goes to International Bridge Technologies, Inc. for the Pitt River Bridge. International Bridge Technologies, Inc. was contracted by Associated Engineering to work on the detailed design of this cable stayed bridge as part of the design/build team headed by Kiewit Construction and engineering consultant Marshall Macklin and Monaghan. The new bridge replaced two existing two-lane bridges on the Pitt River connecting Pitt Meadows and Port Coquitlam near Vancouver, British Columbia. With seven lanes of traffic and one lane dedicated to bicycles and pedestrians, it has eliminated the Highway 7 bottleneck created by the existing swing span bridges. This iconic structure supported by three planes of stay cables was opened to traffic ahead of schedule in the fall of 2009.
