CASE STUDY OF BURLINGTON CABLE-STAYED BRIDGE

Although Europeans have viewed cable-stayed bridges as advantageous since the end of World War II, these bridges are just beginning to gain popularity in the United States. Lack of design and construction experience, however, can lead to cost overruns and scheduling delays. The authors of this paper suggest documenting construction methods on cable-stayed bridge projects--noting lessons learned, successes, failures, and encountered difficulties. A case study is presented that details various aspects of construction and management of the Burlington Cable-Stayed Bridge. The authors emphasize the importance of communication and teamwork in the success of this project.
