The Mississippi Department of Transportation received the Grand Award at the Council of Engineering Companies’ 2017 Engineering Excellence Award Gala in April for its work on the Highway 84 Mississippi River Bridge.

The gala recognized engineering achievements for 2017 from all around the world.

MDOT shared the award with the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development for engineering design displayed in a pin and link replacement project on the bridge that has been in use since 1940.
