Main Span: 1.2 km (.75 mi)

Bridge Length: 280 m (918 ft)

Width: 36 m (118 ft)

The 1.2 km (0.75 mi) main bridge consists of a plate girder approach with continuous spans up to 96 m (315 ft) and a 512 m (1678 ft) long cable stayed structure with a 280 m (918 ft) long main span. The 36 m (118 ft) wide bridge superstructure consists of a steel-concrete composite deck supported by two planes of stay cables in a fan arrangement along the edges. The stay cables are anchored in vertical concrete pylons supported on drilled shaft foundations with pile caps at water level. Rocker links are used at each end of the cable stayed spans to anchor the superstructure and allow for longitudinal deck movement.
