2019 Grand Iris Winner

Barge Design Solutions | Copperhill Watershed Restoration | Ducktown, TN | Glenn Springs Holdings, Inc.

The dramatic transformation of the Copper Basin in Southeast Tennessee has been the successful result of many restoration tasks to repair the damage caused by decades of mining and acid production. The novel approach of adaptive management allowed the project to move efficiently through assessment and remediation in less than 20 years. This innovative approach brought environmental, social, and economic benefits to the community through the transformation of damaged watersheds into healthy streams and rivers that serve residents and visitors with many recreational opportunities, as well as educational opportunities through events and displays showcasing the history of the site and its evolution.

People’s Choice Award

Alfred Benesch & Company | I-240 CMGC - MemFix4 | Memphis, TN | Tennessee Department of Transportation

The Tennessee Department of Transportation sought to complete the widening of the highly traveled I-240 corridor in Memphis, TN, but doing so required addressing the aging bridges and seismic demands of the area. The project, named MemFix4, is comprised of four structures: two Poplar Interchange bridges; a dual track Norfolk Southern Railroad (NSR) bridge; and the Park Avenue bridge. Through the CMGC Delivery method, the project successfully constructed the new bridges over the widened I-240 in 18 months utilizing Accelerated Bridge Construction techniques to minimize impacts to traffic and Norfolk Southern.
