Raccoon Creek Bridge
Raccoon Creek Bridge
ACEC Grand Conceptor Award Palmer Engineering designed the Raccoon Creek Bridge, which received the Grand Conceptor Award by the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC). This award is the highest honor given at a State level. The bridge design was entered in the national level competition in Washington, D.C. and was recognized as a finalist. The bridge, actually a pair of twin bridges over the Raccoon Creek Valley, is part of the new alignment of US 119. The steep terrain, curving roadway, and crowded valley made for a true test of engineering innovation and will provide the residents of Pike County a tremendously improved route to Charleston, WV.

River Road Bridge Widening Over Harrods Creek
River Road Bridge Widening Over Harrods Creek
2011 PCI Design Award Winner The challenge for this concrete arch bridge rehabilitation was to widen the bridge while maintaining the original arch and historic character. The solution was to “hide” a new bridge inside an excavated area of the existing bridge without transferring any of the new loads onto the existing arch.

Howell's Mill Bridge
Howell's Mill Bridge
West Virginia ACEC's Bronze Award Winner - Innovative Bridge Design Motorists crossing the Howell’s Mill Bridge in Cabell County, West Virginia, probably do not realize that their vehicle is being supported by a fiberglass bridge deck. The Howells Mill Bridge incorporates a fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) bridge deck. This material, normally associated with the aerospace and automotive industries, has become an option for bridge design. The two-span 240 foot long steel plate girder bridge is one of the longest bridges with an FRP deck in the country and is the first application of concrete barriers on an FRP deck in West Virginia.

KY-876/Barnes Mill Road
KY-876/Barnes Mill Road
Winner of the 2013 ACEC Engineering Excellence Honor Award. Palmer Engineering was selected by the Madison County Fiscal Court to provide roadway engineering services for KY-876 improvements. This project consisted of 4 sections and was approximately 4 miles in length with 3 stream crossings. The improvements corrected the narrow lanes and shoulders along with curve deficiencies, which had previously required constant maintenance by KYTC. The proposed alignment was developed so that traffic could be maintained along the existing alignment with only short closure periods.
