Wayne County's Macedon Center Road Bridge wins APWA Project of the Year Award
The American Public Works Association has selected Wayne County's Macedon Center Road Bridge as the structures project of the year, in the under $5 million category!
LaBella Associates was retained by the Wayne County Highway Department to design the replacement of the Macedon Center Road Bridge over Red Creek. As part of the $295,000 replacement project, LaBella designed the reconstruction of a 32-foot long timber superstructure bridge supported on sheet pile abutments.
With bridge funding difficult to obtain, Wayne County looked to construct the replacement of the Macedon Center Road Bridge in-house. During design, coordination between the LaBella and the County was required to reach a solution that was feasible for the County to construct with minimal subcontractor support. Finding a solution that minimized the need for concrete work like conventional abutments and concrete bridge decks was the priority.
Congratulations to all on a cost-effective and successful project!
