WRA Receives Honor Award from ACEC/VA.

Senior Vice-President, Jeremy Schlussel, and Associate, Bruce English, accepted the ACEC/VA Honor Award for the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry Dolphin Replacement.

The Jamestown-Scotland Ferry is a Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) operated vehicle ferry near Williamsburg. WRA studied replacement options for failure-prone timber berthing dolphins, designed the selected large fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) monopiles, evaluated installation methods and tested actual energy absorption. The project overcame challenges to provide a high-strength, durable replacement that enhances safety, reduces maintenance cost, and service disruptions at the Ferry.
