Morandi’s classic Favazzina viaduct on Italy’s A3 motorway is slated for destruction around 2012 when it is finally replaced by a new strut frame bridge. Opened in 1974, the southern stretch of the A3 has become dangerous with narrow lanes, no shoulders and tight curves. A huge reconstruction project is underway with new tunnels and viaducts as well as wider curves and shoulders.
