Design
The Crooked River Gorge Bridge is the country's first segmentally cast, temporarily cable-stayed, single-span arch bridge. Kiewit Pacific Co., a subsidiary of Kiewit Corporation, used a construction methodology rarely found in the United States. Divided into 15 separate segments, the bridge was built without the use of typical falsework. Stretching 535 ft. across the Crooked River 295 ft. below, the bridge is four lanes wide with a center median, and accommodates 10,000 vehicles per day.
