  • Location : Mersin

  • Type : Extradosed Bridge

  • Client: Duygu Engineering

  • Service Provided: Design Support & Supervision (ongoing)

  • Summary of Project:

    The bridge has a pylon height of 173 meters. The bridge is planned to be constructed over the Göksu River and it is the most critical structure of the highway project. The contractor has hired Bridgewiz team to investigate the constructability of caisson foundation and superstructure. An alternative superstructure is studied to propose a more construction and maintenance friendly alternative. Also, a new barrette foundation system is suggested to replace the caisson foundation project which seemed to be not suitable for the bridge site according to the new ground investigations.
