CLIENT: Comisión Ejecutiva Hidroeléctrica del río Lempa
LOCATION: Carolina (El Salvador)
KEY ELEMENTS: One of the main issues of this type of bridge lies on the erection method, because the arch is built in cantilever and must be suspended by cable stays until it is closed. A temporary tower has been designed to anchor the front and back cable stays during this construction stage.
BUDGET: US$ 5 million
PROJECT DURATION: Design 2009
