Route 3 Bridge Over New Found River
By designing the bridge using HIGH PERFORMANCE CONCRETE (HPC) New England Bulb Tees (NEBT) the state was able to eliminate one GIRDER from the bridge design resulting in a 20% reduction in the cost of the bridge structure. The wider spacing between girders accompanied by this change was further economized and simplified by utilizing 3.5" thick prestressed stay-in-place decking.
