PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS: OHIO RIVER - EAST END CROSSING
The East End Bridge will be an approximately 2,500-foot-long cable-stayed bridge featuring two convex diamond towers, two lanes in each direction, expandable to three, and a 13-foot-wide pedestrian and bicycle path. The bridge connects Indiana and Kentucky east of Louisville.
McB developed, designed and detailed the precast footing tubs for construction of the tower piers. The 1,100 ton concrete tubs which measure 18' x 48' x 118' are constructed in a dry-dock and floated into position at an external support frame system. Seals covering the 12 holes for the 8' dia drilled shaft are then removed, and shafts are drilled in place.
