Zakim bridge wins ASCE top honour
The Leonard P Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge has been named the 2004 outstanding civil engineering achievement by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The ultra-wide 10 lane cable-stayed bridge is a landmark feature of Boston’s multi-billion dollar Central Artery/Tunnel project. The first four lanes opened in March 2003, and the bridge will be fully operational in 2005. The client is Massachusetts Turnpike Authority and the design was by HNTB Corporation and Figg Bridge Engineers from a concept by Christian Menn.
