Road Worthy

One of Canada’s first uses of ultra-high-performance concrete achieves a state-of-the-art structure.

Calgary, Alberta

Long view

Extends approximately 110 m, with a 64 m clear span over Calgary's Country Hills Blvd, giving motorists an unobstructed view along the busy throughway.

Better beams

A continuous beam structural system eliminates the need for bearings and expansion joints over the boulevard and avoids related maintenance concerns.

Slim fit

Ultra high performance concrete is used in the 34 m drop-in girder because of its high compressive and tensile strength, allowing for a slender T-section.

Rock solid

Three-dimensional computer modeling and dynamic analysis allowed vibration and wind effects to be minimized, thereby enhancing pedestrian comfort.
