The Peldar Bridge at Envigado is a concrete cable-stayed bridge in Envigado, Colombia. The bridge carries Las Vegas Avenue and crosses 37th Street.

Contents

The construction of the bridge was also central to the regeneration plan for the neighborhood. This bridge was conceived as representation of the effort and persistence of the community to overcome the convulsed situation that prevailed in the country at the time of construction.

Description

The bridge has three approached spans of 20.2 m length each and two cable-stayed spans of 121 and 60 m. The two main spans are supported by central stays continuous through a steel saddle on top of the pylon. All stays converge at the top of the pylon as a fan configuration and are 12 m apart.

The deck plan is mostly straight with a constant width of 18.6 meters. The deck is a 2.4 m depth tri-cellular concrete box girder. The deck is internally post-tensioned with longitudinal and transverse tendons.

The 50 m high central pylon is a reinforced concrete tower with a rectangular cross section and variable width in both directions. The pylon is inclined 5°.

The total cost of the structure was approximately US$12 million.

Construction

Construction of the bridge began in 2001, and was successfully completed in July 2003.
