With construction season winding down and a lot of success stories involving restoring historic bridges, now is the time to nominate our favorite historic bridge(s) and preservationists both here and abroad. Between now and the 3rd of December, entries are being taken for the 2017 Othmar H. Ammann Awards. As mentioned many times, there are six categories for both American as well as international bridges which you can nominate. Information on the categories and how you can enter are in the link below.
Voting will take place during the holiday season from December 4th until 6th January, 2018 with the winners to be announced on the 12th. The ballot will be available through The Bridgehunter's Chronicles. If you have bridges that deserve to be nominated and deserve an Award, or if you have any questions, please contact Jason Smith at the Chronicles at:
Happy Bridgehunting and may the nomination for the Ammann Awards begin! :-)
