The International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) has announced the winners of the 2007 Project Awards. The Repair and Preservation of the Historic Rainbow Bridge, Valley County, Idaho, was chosen as the ICRI 2007 Project of the Year.
ICRI presented the award to Vector Corrosion Technologies on Nov. 8 at the ICRI 2007 Fall Convention in Las Vegas. The Rainbow Bridge is the largest single-span concrete arch bridge in the State of Idaho and a landmark structure on the Payette River National Scenic Byway. Designed by Charles A. Kyle, the first Chief Bridge Engineer in Idaho, the structure was designed to blend in gracefully with its stunning surroundings. The structure is a reinforced concrete arch bridge approximately 410 ft in length with a main span of approximately 210 ft in length over the North Fork of the Payette River. The federally funded bridge was completed in 1933 at a cost of $74,000.
ICRI also awarded nine 2007 Awards of Excellence. Detailed descriptions of the winning projects can be found in the November/December 2007 issue of the Concrete Repair Bulletin and at www.icri.org.
