Everett, MA – The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Stantec as a winner of its 2020 Silver Engineering Excellence Award for their work on the Woods Memorial Bridge connecting Everett and Medford. Stantec supported MassDOT as the prime consultant responsible for design and construction phase engineering services.
The 2020 Engineering Excellence Awards were recently announced and will be celebrated at the 2021 ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala. The awards celebrate innovation, ingenuity, and excellence in engineering achievement.
MassDOT’s Woods Memorial Bridge project replaced two functionally obsolete and structurally deficient bridges on a heavily traveled corridor through Everett/Medford.
The Route 16 Revere Beach Parkway Corridor, a major connector roadway between I-93, Route 1 and Route 1A north of Boston, is travelled by more than 73,000 vehicles per day. The Revere Beach Parkway is a historic parkway and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As a result, it was important to balance historical requirements with functionality and low impacts to the public on this project, showing the project team’s commitment to all aspects of design.
The new Woods Memorial Bridge is identified as a significant contributing feature of the Parkway, and was voted a top-ten bridge by Road and Bridge Magazine (2019).
