The emergency replacement of Norfolk Southern Corp.’s collapsed bridge in Missouri is on RT&S magazine’s 2021 Top Projects list.
The Norfolk Southern, Hanson and Massman Construction Co. team was recognized for its work to help Norfolk Southern quickly rebuild the bridge over the Grand River near Brunswick, Missouri, after the rails were cut in 2019 to relieve pressure caused by flooding and debris and to prevent further damage to the rail line. Four spans and three piers were swept away in minutes. The work was finished in 27 days — half the time of the originally estimated 56-day schedule.
Read about the project in our September 2020 blog article, “Urgent Engineering.”
This year’s Top Projects list recognizes a dozen winners in nine categories. Check them out in the magazine’s June issue.
