2010 ARTBA Globe Award
Louis Berger received an American Road and Transportation Builders Association Globe Award for the Trenton-Morrisville Toll Bridge connecting New Jersey with Pennsylvania.
The Trenton-Morrisville Toll Bridge needed to be rehabilitated and widened without changing the footprint of the bridge or impacting the environmentally sensitive Delaware River. Louis Berger met this challenge by adding a northbound lane, improving safety with reconfigured ramps and innovatively applying tested technology to widen the pier.
The Trenton-Morrisville Toll Bridge Project reflects the best of the engineering profession by addressing public needs through an innovative and sustainable approach. The staged construction maintained two lanes of traffic in each direction during all peak periods without significant impacts to the region’s commuters. Today, it relieves local traffic along the busy New Jersey–Pennsylvania corridor.
Established in 1998, the Globe Awards highlight examples of transportation construction industry excellence and recognizes private-sector firms and public-sector transportation agencies that do an outstanding job in protecting and/or enhancing the natural environment in the planning, design and construction of U.S. transportation infrastructure projects.
