FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Erdman Anthony Juniata River Bridge Project Receives Prestigious ACEC-PA Award

HARRISBURG, Pa., March 4—Erdman Anthony was recognized with a Diamond Award in the 2015 American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Pennsylvania Engineering Excellence Awards Competition. The firm received the Honor Award in the Transportation category for the Juniata River Bridge Replacement Project in Juniata County, PA.

The award-winning project entailed designing a replacement for the structurally deficient and flood-prone four-span truss bridge carrying PA Route 35 over the Juniata River between Mifflin and Mifflintown. Because the two boroughs function as one community in many ways, socioeconomic considerations were a primary concern, and the community was engaged in project decisions from the outset. Relocating the bridge approximately 1,500 feet downstream improved traffic flow through the boroughs and allowed the old bridge to be used during construction, eliminating the need for a detour.

A pedestrian bridge constructed at the site of the old bridge maintains an important “Main Street” link for walkers and bicyclists. Additional project features on each side of the new bridge address a variety of social, economic, and functional needs. On the Mifflintown side, a roundabout in front of Tuscarora Middle School and Juniata High School improves bus operations and student safety. On the Mifflin side, a ramp connects the elevated bridge approach to local streets, an underpass provides pedestrian access to Central Juniata Park, and a two-span bridge over Norfolk Southern Railway was replaced while trains rumbled past below.

In addition, a waterfront ramp in the park area provides river access for fire department and recreational use. The project was delivered ahead of schedule and within budget, and the completed bridges enhance the daily lives of local residents, including their access to the Juniata River view shed, while preserving the overall cohesiveness of this rural community.

The ACEC/PA Diamond Awards for Engineering Excellence recognize engineering firms for projects that demonstrate a high degree of achievement, value, and innovation. A distinguished panel of judges with backgrounds in engineering, architecture, state and federal government, media, academia, and the military selects the winners from projects submitted from around the globe.

For 60 years, Erdman Anthony has been providing infrastructure engineering and support services to private industry and government clients. The firm employs over 250 people, including 70 professional engineers and licensed land surveyors, throughout its offices in Albany, Buffalo, and Rochester, New York; Harrisburg and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; West Palm Beach, Florida; and Portland, Maine. Erdman Anthony is one of a relative handful of engineering consulting firms nationwide to have earned ISO 9001 quality certification.

M&M Affirms Commitment to Western PA Region

LEMONT FURNACE, PA | Modjeski and Masters, Inc. (M&M) announces it has opened a new regional office in Lemont Furnace, PA. The office will serve the Pittsburgh area along with the rest of Western Pennsylvania. The office is M&M’s 10th and marks continued expansion for the firm. 

“This new office strengthens our commitment to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and many regional clients,” said Michael F. Britt, PE, senior vice president and director of business development at M&M. “Modjeksi takes pride in our work and how it connects communities. We look forward to continuing to provide lifecycle bridge engineering services to our clients. But equally important, with an office in Western Pennsylvania, we can work, connect and foster stronger relationships with the communities our clients serve. We can help build a stronger and better Pennsylvania.” 

M&M recently completed a full rehabilitation on the Donald R. Lobaugh Bridge in Freeport, PA., approximately 25 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. Emergency repairs designed by M&M engineers kept the bridge from closing. This prevented a long, and potentially costly, 20-mile detour for large vehicles, such as emergency vehicles, school buses and commercial trucks. The full bridge rehabilitation will greatly increase the service life of the bridge, benefiting the local community. It will also decrease maintenance costs, benefitting PennDOT. 

“It’s these types of projects that make a major difference for local communities and tax payers across the state,” continued Britt. “It’s no secret that Pennsylvania’s infrastructure can be improved. We’re now in a better position to partner in that effort.”
