ICRI Announces Winners of the 2019 Project Awards

The International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) has announced the winners of its 2019 Project Awards. The Ile-aux-Tourtes Bridge Rehabilitation was chosen as the ICRI 2019 Project of the Year. This year, three finalists were chosen, and the winner was announced at an awards ceremony.

ICRI presented the award to Sika Canada Inc. at the ICRI 2019 Fall Convention in Philadelphia. Ile-aux-Tourtes Bridge, a 54-year-old highway structure in a Montreal suburb, needed repairs due to corrosion of pre-stressed strands in concrete girders. A complex mix of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CRFP) fabric and external post-tensioning have been put in place to provide the structure with 15 more years of service. Some of the latest technologies in construction were used including the 3D scanning of bridge elements and radar detection of steel reinforcement and pre-stressed cables. Concrete slab and girders also needed repairs with mortars and epoxy injections.

ICRI awarded seven additional 2019 Awards of Excellence. Detailed descriptions of the winning projects can be found in the November/December 2019 issue of the Concrete Repair Bulletin and online.
