ADOT wins ASU sustainability award for Navajo Nation bridge

The Arizona Department of Transportation and the U.S. Geological Survey’s Arizona Water Science group made the Laguna Creek Bridge on the Navajo Nation a pilot site to test next-generation monitoring technologies. The bridge is equipped with sensors and gauges to provide surface flow data during and after storms. Drones, video cameras, laser-aided surveying and 3D surface modeling are also among the innovative features. The bridge won one of the first Sustainable Infrastructure Awards recently given by ASU’s Metis Center for Infrastructure and Sustainable Engineering, directed by Fulton Schools Associate Professor Mikhail Chester.
