Rich Street Bridge
- Jan 23, 2015
Columbus is graced by a number of elegant arch bridges and the Rich Street Bridge was designed to provide an attractive gateway to the city. Rich Street provides visual link between traditional Broad Street and contemporary Main Street. Large 10-foot sidewalks grace the structure.
The precast arch bridge was designed with a 100-year life with minimal maintenance. Epoxy-coated reinforcing steel (ECR rebar) was used within the structure to provide corrosion protection to the reinforcing steel and to facilitate the 100-year life requirement. In addition, the cast-in-place deck was overlaid using a 1-1/2 in. micro-silica modified concrete overlay.
