Abstract: A cable-stayed bridge crossing the Mississippi River at Quincy, Illinois, was completed in August 1987. The structure includes twin concrete towers and a hybrid deck section. The cable system utilizes epoxy-coated seven-wire strand grouted in polyethylene pipe, the first such application in the world. Extensive fatigue testing qualified the system for this use and is reported herein. This paper describes the bridge superstructure and discusses the erection of the towers, cables and deck sections, cable fabrication, and certain special testing and controls employed during the construction phase of the project.
