The Almonte Viaduct has been awarded with the Gustav Lindenthal Medal promoted by the Western Pennsylvania Engineers Association.

The award recognizes recently completed works, whose design and construction has represented a technical challenge, including material innovations, aesthetic merit and harmony with the environment. Previous medallists include world-renowned structures such as the Øresund Bridge or the Millau Viaduct.

The awards ceremony took place during the IBC - International Bridge Conference 2017, which took place in the US capital. Guillermo Capellán, representing Arenas & Asociados, was in charge of receiving the commemorative plaque together with Pablo Jiménez Guijarro (ADIF AV), and Pedro Cavero (FCC Construcción).
