Courtland Street Bridge Project Earns ACEC Georgia 2020 Engineering Excellence Grand Award

Congratulations to Michael Baker International for winning the ACEC Georgia 2020 Engineering Excellence Grand Award for the Courtland Street Bridge Project! We were honored to be a part of the team for Surveying and Subsurface Utility Engineering during this incredible project. Preserving the historical aspects of the original bridge while also reducing the construction impact on the local community, the new and improved Courtland Street Bridge serves as a major thoroughfare through the downtown campus of Georgia State University (GSU). Originally built in 1906, the bridge crosses over two Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) tracks, two CSX Railroad tracks, and Decatur Street. Under the original design-bid-build concept, the closure duration for the reconstruction of the bridge would have been at least 18 months but by using design-build and Accelerated Bridge Construction, the total roadway closure time was five months!
