The California Division of the Federal Highway Administration honored Kiewit/Manson, AJV, along with federal and state agencies who worked together to develop an implosion method for removing the old San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge concrete piers. This method was found to have the least impact on the environment through scientific monitoring and measurements observed before, during and after the implosion of Pier E3. The work led to data that helped set up methodology improvements and assisted in defining boundary limits to avoid impacts to Bay Area wildlife and water quality.
Kiewit project leadership accepted the award at the 2017 Environmental Excellence Award Ceremony in December.
