O&G Industries' Heavy Civil Construction Group recently won the Connecticut Society of Civil Engineers (CSCE) Construction ACE Award of Merit and the Transportation ACE Award of Merit for the Rehabilitation of the Route 175 Bridge in Newington, Conn.

The project, awarded by the Connecticut Department of Transportation, was one of the first accelerated bridge construction projects completed in the state.

Accelerated bridge construction is a process by which a bridge is largely pre-fabricated off site, then “installed” during short windows of time to reduce the impact to motorists, AMTRAK service on the rail line beneath the bridge and accelerate overall time to completion.

The Route 175 project was completed in only five months using this design-build methodology, while limiting lane closures to two weekends in late summer. Construction on the project began in May of 2017 and was completed in the fall of 2017.

The project also has been recognized with the Connecticut Building Congress (CBC) Project Team Award of Merit in the Transportation/Civil/Utilities category.
