CAST CONNEX® is among the talented project team members bestowed the esteemed National Steel Bridge Alliance: Prize Bridge Award (National Distinction) for the Frances Appleton Pedestrian Bridge restoration project located in Boston, Massachusetts.
The structure, which won in the Special Purpose category of the competition, is a part of the master plan to restore the iconic Longfellow Bridge that spans the Charles River between Boston and Cambridge.
Cast Connex supplied the custom cast steel wye nodes engineered to improve the fatigue performance of the pier connections and provide the approach spans with a unique aesthetic.
“These projects are tributes to the creativity of the designers and the skills of the constructors who collaborated to make them reality,” said AISC President Charles J. Carter, SE, PE, PhD. “Steel shines and soars on their talents and we celebrate the accomplishments these projects represent.”
