The Crooked River Gorge Bridge is the country's first segmentally cast, temporarily cable-stayed, single-span arch bridge. It features two lanes in each direction, as well as a center median. The arched, concrete structure is 535 feet long, 79 feet wide and spans 295 feet above the Crooked River.
Known as the “Bridge of Glass,” the 500-foot-long Chihuly Pedestrian Bridge was constructed as part of Tacoma's downtown revitalization effort and houses more than $12 million worth of sculptural glass. Kiewit worked closely with Burlington Northern Santa Fe, the City of Tacoma, the Washington State Department of Transportation and Chihuly Studio to ensure this $3.9 million project was completed on time.
Due to the wrath of Hurricane Ivan on September 16, 2004, nearly a quarter mile of the two-lane double span I-10 concrete bridge spanning Escambia Bay was torn apart. A joint venture quickly responded to the $33 million design-build reconstruction effort amid one of Florida's hardest hit areas.
Constructed by a Kiewit-led joint venture, this $100 million, 10-lane Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge is the world's widest cable-stayed structure. The new bridge opened to traffic in March 2003 and is the highlight of Boston's multi-billion dollar “Big Dig” Central Artery/Tunnel project.
A Kiewit-led joint venture constructed the Bay Bridge SAS E2/T1 project. The scope of work involved building the foundation of the self-anchored-suspension 530-foot-tall tower, known as the T1 footing, and constructing the eastern-most support structure, or E2, for the Skyway Segment. The three-part E2 structure is 220 feet long by 80 feet wide and the footing structure is 85 feet long, 73 feet wide and 21 feet thick.
A Kiewit-led joint venture completed this project in 42 months. Crews scheduled around three maintenance-of-traffic phases to complete renovations and repairs on the approximately 1-mile long, two-level, 10-lane bridge that spans the East River and connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Queens.
