The first Cable-Stayed Bridge over the Magdalena River in Colombia is taking shape. Promoted by the Instituto Nacional de Vías (INVIAS), the new bridge is located in the road from Honda to Puerto Bogotá and will replace an existing suspension bridge.
The light-weight deck is built with cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete segments. Up to 21 of the 23 final segments have been already placed. Each segment is 4.45 m long. A total of 96 parallel strand stay-cables will support the deck from the H-shape towers. Once completed, the Honda Bridge will have a main span of 240 m.
