Map 

Description 

"Constructed in fall of 2008, the Jakway Park Bridge in Buchanan County, Iowa was the first North American highway bridge constructed using innovative “pi-girders” cast of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). The pi-girders were cast with an integral deck for accelerated construction and enhanced wearing surface durability and are so named for their semblance to the Greek letter π."
