On April 26, 2019 Consulting Engineers of Ontario (CEO) hosted their 17th annual Ontario Consulting Engineering Awards (OCEA) Gala at Copper Creek Golf Club. Eleven awards were presented at the event, including an Award of Excellence for Fountain Street Bridge by Parsons Engineering, with DTAH for bridge architecture and landscape architecture. This new 150m span bridge crosses the Grand River in the north part of Cambridge, replacing an existing four-span structure while retaining the same in-river piers. The innovative bridge deck cross-section provides a generous amount of shared pedestrian and cyclist multi-use pathway space, connecting community trail systems on both sides of the river. The new open metal railing provides the required vehicle crash protection, while also incorporating a distinctive outer bicycle-height panel with an undulating ripple pattern that responds to the natural riverside setting.
