Colombia Bridges 90 to 100 meters

Jump to: navigation, search

One of two tall bridges on Colombia’s Autopista Bogotá-Villavicencio, the Puente Chirajara (95 meters high) crosses a V-shaped canyon creek on an alignment that curves nearly 90 degrees from one end of the bridge to the other. The 2-lane deck is supported on two steel girders in a box beam configuration that traverses 4 spans, the longest extending 309 feet (94 mtrs) between piers. The foundation of pier 1 extends approximately 148 feet (45 mtrs) underground. Located along the Pan-American Highway, the Puente Juanambu (90 meters high) is a high prestressed concrete beam bridge with a main span of 295 feet (90 mtrs). The bridge is located somewhere between Pasto and Popayan.
