SNC-Lavalin has bagged a multi-year design and engineering contract for replacing the Shepard Broad Causeway bridge in south Florida.

According to the Canadian EPC company, the bridge replacement project in Florida will result in multi-modal safety enhancements, boost mobility, improve capability in hurricane evacuation, and alleviate daily and seasonal congestion. These are expected to be achieved by replacing the old bascule bridge with a bridge that complies with present standards in design and is in line with the regulations of the United States Coast Guard (USCG).
