National Steel Bridge Alliance

Neponset River Greenway

Sustainability Commendation

The Neponset bridge blends seamlessly into the canopy of the surrounding trees. Thanks to a design and fabrication scheme that actively worked to minimize material waste, as well as its durable coating system, the bridge is expected to experience reduced life-cycles costs. When it comes to designing for sustainability, this project checks all of NSBA's boxes.
