International Bridge | Vail, Colorado
Client: Town of Vail
The International Bridge is located in the center of Vail, Colorado. Aesthetics played a major role in the design of this spread box girder structure. The true superstructure of the bridge is hidden behind pre-cast spandrel panels mounted on the outside girders and faced with stone. The primary use of this bridge is pedestrian traffic, however, it is a fully-rated, HS-20 vehicular bridge and used for deliveries, emergency vehicles, and other maintenance purposes. During the winter season the bridge is the site of many skiing competition award ceremonies.
