Abstract:

This concrete box girder viaduct, an Award of Merit in the 1984 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement competition, helps complete a seven mile gap in the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. To preserve the scenic face of Grandfather Mountain, it was built of precast deck and pier segments with few falsework bents. Compound curves and elevation changes complicated its design and construction.
