A brief overview is presented of the design of the highway bridge linking Rio de Janeiro and Niteroi, which was completed and opened to traffic in 1974. The main navigation span contains a record girder span of 300 m in length. Inasmuch as the design of long span bridges cannot be separated from their erection, a brief description of the bridge erection is also included. /Author/
