WJE Staff Work with Engineers Without Borders in Nicaragua

May 30, 2014
Staff from WJE's Chicago and Los Angeles offices recently traveled to Nicaragua with the Engineers Without Borders Illinois Institute of Technology (EWB-IIT) student chapter to assist with a bridge designing project. EWB-IIT is working with the San Claudio community, located in the northwestern part of the country. During the rainy season, a river within the area floods to a height of ten to fifteen feet, preventing access to schools, medical clinics, and markets. EWB-IIT is working with several organizations to propose a feasible bridge design that can be constructed within the next few years.
