Extended Life Span
The Harlem River Lift Span—part of New York City's Triborough Bridge System—was the largest vertical span in the country at the time of its construction in 1936. The lift...

Taking Treatment to the Extremes
Designing a wastewater treatment facility that meets current environmental guidelines can be challenging enough. But designing it so it can be shipped, constructed, operated, and maintained...

Closing the Gap
In 1944 Congress authorized construction of the Foothills Parkway, a 116 km highway through the Tennessee mountains along the northwestern edge of Great Smoky Mountains National Park....

Good Vibrations
As advances in material technology and structural efficiency find reflection in structures that are lighter, more slender, and more daring architecturally, design teams must focus more...

Parkway Payoff
A massive cast-in-place segmental bridge over the James River is the most noticeable part of the $325 million Route 895 toll road project in Richmond, Virginia, but the most innovative...

The Transportation Connection
The story of a project as immense as the Port of Los Angeles Pier 400 construction has more than a few subplots, one of which is most certainly the design and construction of the Transportation...

Design Considerations for the North Railroad Alluvial Fan Levee System in Boulder City, Nevada
This paper presents a drainage study for a flood control levee system in Boulder City, Nevada. This levee system is located below an alluvial fan watershed and was proposed to protect...

High-Performance Highway
Straightening and widening 118 mi (190 km) of state road 44 in northwest New Mexico in under three years required some innovative financing. Not only did the New Mexico State Highway and...

Cliff-Hanger
To create an arch bridge over a river gorge in Oregon without disturbing the canyon walls or floor below, engineers combined a segmental construction scheme with a temporary cable-stay...

Shotcrete Lining Design Concepts for New and Rehabilitated Tunnels

Making the Most of HPC
Developing high-performance concrete (HPC) was only the first step toward bringing a material with improved durability, strength, constructability, and mechanical properties to the bridge...

A Grand New Bridge
Approximately 65 km south of Seoul, rising above the Asan Bay, the Seohae Grand Bridge now stands as the longest bridge in South Korea. The 9.4 km long cable-stayed bridge, which runs...

Monitoring Two Tunnels
Two pilot projects for bored tunneling in soft soil have been undertaken in the Netherlands under the authority of the Centre for Underground Construction: the Second Heinenoord Tunnel...
