INNOVATION IN BRIDgES
Finley Engineering group, Inc.
Marble Falls Bridge
marble Falls, Texas, united States
The $30 million twin bridges replacing a deteriorating bridge in downtown
marble Falls, Texas, will improve public safety and traffic flow to northern
Burnet county. Finley engineering Group’s goal was to provide the contractor
with a construction analysis and detailed integrated shop drawings for each
segment, including geometry sheets, post-tensioning details, rebar details,
countless hours were saved by exporting the 3D geometry from rm Bridge
into DGn files using bridge information modeling. Bentley rebar allowed
Finley to quickly provide reinforcing details, bar lengths, cut sheets, and
quantities to meet the aggressive construction schedule. exporting the 3D
post-tensioning tendon geometry allowed cADD technicians to easily check
for reinforcing and duct conflicts.

Bridge over tonto creek
Tonto Basin, Arizona, united States
Tonto Basin is a rural Arizona community along State route 188 north of
roosevelt lake. Tondo creek bisects the town, separating half of the residents
from services such as healthcare, post office, shopping, and the elementary
school. Three at-grade crossings link the east and west sides, but a flooding
event can render one or all of the crossings impassable from two to three weeks
to several months.
The bridge over Tonto creek will provide a safe, reliable all-weather crossing.
Kimley-Horn and Associates evaluated locations for a 2,000-foot-long bridge
and presented the preferred alternative at public meetings. microStation and
Inroads enabled the team to complete a thorough road and bridge design that
was effectively rendered and communicated to the public.
