2020 DCC Award Winner
Roseville Downtown Bridge, T.B. Penick & Sons

First Place: Concrete Artistry, Over 5,000 SF

The Roseville Downtown Bridge, a 30-foot wide pedestrian bridge featuring a glass-seeded band, connects the town square to a park. At one end, a grand staircase leads to a new civic plaza. Throughout its length, the bridge celebrates the creek below with its water flow image. The meandering band, separated with metal strips epoxied into saw cuts, guides visitors across the span.

One of the project’s main challenges was the temperature. During the day, it tipped 100 degrees F and at night dropped to 50-60 degrees, causing the bridge to shrink 1 ½ to 2 inches.

Since the producer didn’t supply ice or chilled water, T.B. Penick had to rely on shrinkage-reducing admixtures and set retarders. The crew cut the stainless-steel strips at every joint to prevent the shrinkage from causing damage.
