Special thanks to Eastern Washington University for this drone footage capturing the University District Gateway Bridge, the north landing area (the EWU and WSU Health Sciences campuses), the south landing, and the new Catalyst and Scott Morris Innovation Center buildings under construction.


The American Council of Engineering Companies of Washington's annual Engineering Excellence Awards program awarded KPFF Consulting Engineers a Gold Award in February 2021 for Structural Systems for the University District Gateway Bridge project.

Fifteen projects were honored in this year's program. The top national awards will go on to compete in the ACEC national competition in Washington, D.C., in April.

Project entries were evaluated by a five-judge panel: Kathy Robertson, engineer emeritus at Pickets Engineering; Bob Axley, engineer emeritus at Wood Harbinger; Supriya Kelkar, principal architect at Sound Transit; Steve Johnston, engineer emeritus at Landau Associates; and Benjamin Minnick, construction editor at the Daily Journal of Commerce.
