Anchored End Span Bridge

Anchored End Span Bridge

Anchored End Span Bridge

I am trying to find more information about anchored end span bridges. If anyone could point me to any articles about these types of bridges I would appreciate it. Thanks

RE: Anchored End Span Bridge

Here's an article about a local bridge that has anchored end spans. Is this the type of bridge you are referring to?


There have been a few more done around here that I have plans for.

RE: Anchored End Span Bridge

Thanks. I found that article and another steel bridge that won an award in Ohio and another one in Florida.

I am mainly interested how the end spans are anchored and the details associated with the anchorage and abutments.

RE: Anchored End Span Bridge

We've done a few steel girder bridges where we had uplift at the abutments resisted by piles cast in drilled shafts.

Were you interested in the tie-downs between the girders and abutment cap, or the geotechnical resistance?

RE: Anchored End Span Bridge

Seems like ages ago we designed a 270' concrete bridge tied down at abutments. Link
Let me know if you are interested in the plans.
