LEWIS AND CLARK BRIDGE
The Lewis and Clark Bridge completes a limited access bypass around the city of Louisville. The bridge links Kentucky Highway 841 to Indiana Highway 265, creating an alternate route across the Ohio River.
The total length of the cable-stayed structure is 2,280 ft (695 m) with a main span of 1,200 ft (365 m) providing a minimum clearance for the navigation channel of 900 ft x 71 ft (274 m x 22 m).
The 124 ft (38 m) wide superstructure carries six lanes of traffic and a 13 ft (4 m) wide pedestrian/bikeway. It is supported by two planes of stay cables in a harp arrangement anchored along the edges of the deck. The pylons have an arched diamond shape and adhere to the strict height limitations established by local stakeholders. Design-build project.
