This highway underpass runs below an airport taxiway for Airborne Express’ (ABX, Inc.) international hub. The precast units were set on cast-in-place pedestal walls. The structure is one of two at this site designed to carry a fully loaded 747 cargo plane, weighing 900,000 pounds, over a relocated highway. “CON/SPAN ® was selected because it provided the required strength for heavy loading, had an attractive appearance, offered long-term durability with low maintenance requirements, and was the lowest cost solution” said Steve Gress, the project manager for R.W. Armstrong Engineers in Indianapolis, Indiana.
