CN - South Bend Bridge
Posted March 8, 2020, by JB

6-span bridge; 4 spans over river are twin-girder units (one under each of the two tracks) with a concrete trough above; the road spans at each end are twin-girder units with floor beams and concrete trough between the girders of each set; the wide-set pairs over the road allow decreased depth for more clearance; reinforced-concrete facades attached to outer fascia girders of road spans with shear studs;
