“A wonderful piece of Americana” receives national award

It’s not just any bridge. It’s one of the many “rainbow” bridges built in early 20th century America.

Ft. Scott, KS‘ National Avenue Bridge, a reinforced concrete arch bridge that was designed by James Barney Marsh, needed extensive renovation after 80 years of wear and tear.

We partnered with Wildcat Concrete Services of Topeka, KS completed a total rehabilitation of the bridge.

The bridge just won the American Public Works Association‘s 2013 Project of the Year Award for historic restoration for small cities. The award ceremony will take place in Lawrence, KS in May.
