FIRST U.S. CABLE-STAYED SEGMENTAL BRIDGE BEATS SCHEDULE

Planning, design and construction of the Pasco-Kennewick cable-stayed segmental bridge that is constructed from 80-ft.-wide by 7-ft.-deep by 27-ft.-long bridge segments, which weigh up to 300 tons each and are among the largest precast bridge segments ever erected is described. The central 1794 ft. of the box girder is supported solely by cable-stays from two towers 175 ft. over the roadway. And the entire 2503-ft. length of the bridge, which includes cast-in-place elements of the box girder over the approach spans, acts as a continuous unit; the only deck expansion joint is at the Kennewick abutment where up to 2 ft. of longitudinal temperature movement can occur.
