2016 Grand Iris Award Winner - Gresham, Smith and Partners

Grand Iris Award Winner

(TDOT Fast Fix 8 Project, Nashville, TN  = Transportation)

TDOT selected GS&P to provide comprehensive design and engineering for structural bridge repairs and roadway improvements on I-40 in downtown Nashville, encompassing four mainline bridge sites spanning Charlotte Avenue, Jo Johnston Avenue, Clinton Street, Herman Street and active CSXT and NWRR railroad tracks. The Fast Fix 8 project was delivered in a scant 10-weekend closure period and deployed numerous rehabilitation methods including full-depth deck panels and prefabricated superstructure units. The accelerated construction schedule was driven by I-40’s tremendous traffic load (> 140,000 ADT), and the need to minimize disruption to the central and mid-town business districts’ primary access points.
