Best Use - Innovative Bridge Design
Arroyo Veleno Bridge
The large, pipe void design eliminated the possible conflicts during erection and made the use of small-aggregate ready-mixed concrete for the connection. It is estimated that this method:
- saved 170 forming days
- reduced materials for project savings of over $410,000.
- ability to erect multiple caps in a single shift accelerated the construction schedule.
- 30 individual precast caps were used on this project, each weighed approximately 102,500 pounds.
