Company: American Bridge
Project Location: Kansas City, Kansas
- 20 piers; three river piers and 17 piers over land
- The smaller columns and caps over land included ‘6’ x 4′ x 21′ (1.8 m x 1.2 m x 6.4 m) tall columns with caps measuring 8′ (2.4 m) tall x 48′ (14.6 m) long x 6′ (1.8 m) wide the largest measuring 72′ (22 m) wide x 110′ (33.5 m) tall x 12′ (3.6 m) deep.
Replacement of the west bound lanes of the Lewis & Clark bridge along I-70 which spans the Kansas River.
- The bigger piers and caps were made in four to five pours using EFCO PLATE GIRDER
- Cap forming can be even more efficient by completely assembling a cap form on the ground and then placing both the cap form and the reinforcing steel fully assembled into place for pouring.
