The six winners of the Portland Cement Association's 1988 Concrete Bridge Awards Program are described. The Bow River Bridge, Calgary, Alberta, Canada meets two transportation needs within a single structure: a pedestrian bridge and a light-rail bridge with an unusual inverted box girder design. The Ingraham Street Bridge, San Diego's 1,200-feet bridge, a major traffic corridor in an environmentally sensitive area, posed several design challenges. The Interstate 85/285 Interchange, Georgia, is a complex of 19 bridges and several miles of ramps. Linn Cove Viaduct, North Carolina is 1,250-foot, has S curves, and is designed to be environmentaly unobtrusive. Ocean County Plaza Bridge, New Jersey's 115-foot structure was installed in 1 1/2 days; its box culvert structure meets growing demand for bridge replacement. Tampico Bridge, Mexico, a major traffic artery, is an exellent example of long-span cable-stayed design.
