Bridges start with an idea, then a design, and result in a critical piece of infrastructure that you, your family and friends can actually walk, bike or drive across. Over the years, your work at HDR will connect communities, business centers, neighborhoods, people and cultures. Whether it is a traditional structure on a county road or an iconic, engineering marvel that redefines the skyline, you will have created something that matters. And while not every project leads to industry accolades, your own sense of accomplishment, the team's pride in a job well done, the respect of satisfied clients and the improved mobility of a community are worth more.

Besides, we've already earned three ACEC Grand Conceptor Awards for bridges: the Mike O'Callghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, built to improve safety around the Hoover Dam; the SR 520 bridge, the world's longest floating bridge, and the Bayonne Bridge Navigational Clearance project where we were the first to raise a roadway within an existing arch span. You just might play a role on the next one!
