A LOOK AT WHAT SOME STATES ARE DOING ... VIRGINIA BRIDGE RECEIVES AWARD

The Varina-Enon Bridge that carries Interstate 295 across the James River near Richmond has been awarded a Federal Design Achievement Award from the National Endowment for the Arts. The visually striking, cable-stayed bridge was described as an example of significant new direction in bridge construction, one that is both economical and aesthetically pleasing. The 4,680-ft-long structure is the first cable-stayed bridge to use precast triangular frames to create the cables stays.
