DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF NORTH HALAWA VALLEY VIADUCT

The North Halawa Valley Viaduct is a 2-km-long prestressed concrete box girder bridge on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. It is the first cast-in-place cantilever segmental bridge in the United States to be built from an overhead erection gantry. The design features of the project are described, and the reasons for choosing that construction method are given. The main features of the operation of an erection gantry are described, and some of the problems arising during the construction of the bridge are discussed. Finally, the instrumentation of the structure to monitor its long-term performance is detailed.
