Lake Champlain Bridge
Posted February 17, 2017, by Randy Needham (Rando [at] needhams [dot] us)

This should be categorized as a Network Arch. Actually it is a network tied arch. Ted Zoli of HNTB was the designer. The design was driven in part from the installation methodology. The entire main span was lifted from barges using strand jacks.
