ASBI Awards Top Honor to Kanawha River Bridge

The record-setting Kanawha River Bridge in Charleston, WV received the American Segmental Bridge Institute’s (ASBI) “Bridge Award of Excellence” at the 23rd annual ASBI Convention held in Washington, DC this November. ASBI awards this honor to bridges that exemplify concrete segmental bridge design and construction excellence. Kanawha surpassed the award qualifications for numerous reasons; most notable is the 760ft main span which is the longest concrete box girder span in the United States. This is the second award for the Kanawha River Bridge, having been named the #1 Bridge in North America by Roads and Bridges Magazine.
