Abstract: The guideways for the driverless rubber-tired vehicles are entirely aerial. As a result of severe restrictions on horizontal alignment and pier locations imposed by the downtown Miami streets and businesses, the guideway structures have unusually sharp curves and high span/curve radius ratios. These factors had an appreciable effect on the design and construction of the guideways. This paper describes some of the unusual aspects of the design and fabrication of the guideway superstructure, and summarizes the design procedures used.
