Ohio River Bridges Project — Section 2, I- 65 Bridge Over Ohio River michael Baker Jr., inc.
The Ohio River Bridges Project addresses long-term cross-river
transportation in the Louisville-Southern Indiana region. The
project is comprised of a new downtown bridge just east of
the Kennedy Bridge (I- 65), an east-end bridge about eight
miles from downtown, and a rebuild to the south of the
Kennedy Interchange where I- 64, I- 65, and I- 71 converge
in downtown Louisville.

The major challenge of this project was the coordination of
numerous engineering firms all working simultaneously on
the design. Project Wise enabled Baker to safely access,
manage, and share files to a level not previously possible.
For example, the client can comment and replace files directly
into the assigned folders without relying on e-mail or hard
copy. In addition, team members are able to access files
from any computer via the Internet.
The São Francisco do Sul BR 101 project in Brazil will improve
the traffic capacity of highway BR 280. In some parts, the
existent roadway will be used, but other sections will require
completely new roadway. The highway speed adopted was
110 kilometers per hour with a super-elevation maximum of
With the assistance of MicroStation and GEOPAK, it was
possible to automate routines that once were slow and
complicated, and integrate the workflows of multiple depart-
ments, increasing overall productivity and reliability. Specifically,
Prosul Proj Superv Planej experienced a productivity increase
of approximately 30 percent. In addition, the soft ware’s inter-
operability with other applications further streamlined workflows,
and its 3D visualizations allowed the firm to make fantastic
presentations to its clients.
