Page Avenue Tied Arch Bridge


Construction of twin 17-span bridges across the Missouri River was part of the Page Avenue Extension Project relieving congestion on I-70 in St. Louis, Missouri. Kraemer constructed two, 600-foot-long tied arches for the main bridge spans. To expedite construction, each tied arch was floated into place above the Missouri River’s navigational channel on a falsework tower custom designed by Kraemer. The project scope also included the construction of concrete decks and approaches.
