Memorial Bridge Awards & Recognitions
The Memorial Bridge project team would like to thank everyone who supported the project, in countless ways. So many of you shared your stories of the old bridge and shared your enthusiasm for the new bridge. Many of you stood outside in the cold nights during the winter and the hot days during the summer to watch the demolition and construction activity. Many of you sent prayers to the construction workers to be safe. You shared in the work that needed to be done to create the new bridge.
The project team wants to share with you the awards and recognitions that have been received so far for this project. This has been a wonderful journey for all of us. Thank you!
