Columbus, Indiana, is planning a dramatic entrance into their city via the $4 million Gateway Arch Bridge. The bridge is a sleek twin-ribbed steel arch structure with a post-tensioned composite concrete deck, transverse post-tensioned composite steel box girders, and cable-stayed hangers. This article provides extensive details on the dimensions and mechanics of the bridge's design and notes that this showcase structure could be used in other long-span composite girder or cable-stayed bridges. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 1995.
