FT. CARSON BRIDGE P-85091 / O’CONNEL BLVD.


In order to meet the project completion date required by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Candalaria Corporation elected to use precast foundations to support the first ECO-SPAN® arch installed in the State of Colorado. This allowed the complete structure to be installed before any cast-in-place concrete was placed or cured, saving valuable time.Precast arch segments were installed under existing utilities that could not be relocated or temporarily removed.

The new concrete arch system replaced a 17’ span corrugated metal pipe arch.
