ROCHESTER, N.Y., January 2 — The Erdman Anthony-designed Allen Padgham Road Bridge over Ganargua Creek in Farmington has won an award for the project owner, the Ontario County Public Works Department. The Genesee Valley Branch of the American Public Works Association has named the project a 2018 recipient of the Project of the Year Award for structure projects in the less than $5 million category. The project replaced an existing two-span 120-foot bridge with a single-span 150-foot steel multigirder bridge with integral abutments. The new bridge opened at the end of September.
Representatives from Ontario County and Erdman Anthony will attend the awards ceremony at the RIT Inn & Conference Center on January 31.
