The Federal Highway Administration presented ODOT as the project owner, Wildish Standard Paving Co. as the construction contractor, and Otak as the engineering firm with an Exemplary Human Environment Initiative Award in the category of Enhancing the Environment for Human Activities for the Upper Perry Arch Bridge project! Otak’s Ron Jee attended an award ceremony at the Upper Perry Arch Bridge near La Grande, Oregon. We provided a bridge rehabilitation and roadway design that prepared this historically significant structure to accommodate modern traffic loads while preserving its historic qualities. The rehabilitated bridge’s service life has been extended another 30+ years.  In addition, Otak designed the adjacent bridge viewing area that is being well utilized by visitors. We are honored to receive this national award and thankful to everyone who worked on this project to preserve the Upper Perry Arch Bridge!
