NEW BRIDGE OVER VIRILLA RIVER IN COSTA RICA

01/2018

The new bridge over Virilla River in Costa Rica, part of the National Route 147, is a steel-concrete composite frame bridge with a total length of 132.6 meters divided into three spans: 39.5 m-54 m-39.1 m.

The National Route 147 is an important communication link with a level of traffic superior to 45.000 vehicles every day. The bridge is part of a widening project to duplicate the capacity of the Route. The bridge will give continuation to the increase in capacity across the Virilla River, which is why it has been designed a few meters apart from the current bridge. In the future, each bridge will carry traffic in one direction.

The new bridge has been designed by a JV composed of FHECOR and GINPROSA, which were awarded the competition promoted by UNOPS. The construction works for the bridge were started in June 2017 by COPISA.
