The Urban Loop Awarded #5 of Top 10 Roads and Bridges
This month, the Roads and Bridges publication released its Top 10 Roads and Bridges Awards issue. We’re proud to share the Urban Loop I-80, I-35, IA 141, and Adjacent Interchanges project landed the number five spot in the Top 10 list across North America. Each year, nominations are submitted to the R&B editorial staff, who determine the Top 10 list based on project challenges, impact to the region, and scope of work.
Top Road #5 – The Right Size: Only One Philosophy Would Do for the Urban Loop
The Highway 141 flyover bridge was the cornerstone to resolving congestion. Located at the convergence of I-80 and I-35 in the northwest quadrant of Des Moines, Iowa, not only was the flyover a critical element for the overall interchange design, but also for the planning and design of adjacent interchanges.
