The Mon-Fayette Expressway will provide more than 70 miles of limited-access highway in Allegheny, Washington, and Fayette counties
south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Opened in July 2012, the USD 97. 9 million Monongahela River Bridge (Section 51H of the project)
alleviates truck traffic on US Route 40 along the 17-mile stretch from Uniontown to Brownsville. As Engineer of Record for the Pennsylvania
Turnpike Commission, FIGG Bridge Engineers provided final design, construction engineering, and on-site inspection services.
The 3,022-foot-long segmental concrete bridge features seven continuous spans, including a 518-foot main span, octagonal 200-foot-
high piers, and variable-depth superstructure. Given the fast-paced schedule, MicroStation was used to allow FIGG to merge working
engineering drawings into construction drawings, generating time savings that decreased the cost of project delivery. MicroStation’s
accuracy in 3D modeling helped to avoid conflicts, which minimized risk for the contractor.
The EUR 12. 6 million Teror Bridge spans a picturesque valley on Isla de Gran Canaria, Provincia de Las Palmas, Spain. As a gateway to
this beautiful territory, the 145-meter-long structure was designed as an extradosed cable-stayed bridge, enabling it to cross without
intermediate supports and thus reduce environmental impact.
BIM methodology was used for 3D modeling of the prestressed concrete bridge and all its structural elements, minimizing errors in data
for stakeout, drawings, and checking. EIPSA designed the viaduct and used RM Bridge analysis software to calculate the theoretical
deformations in all phases of construction. Comsa Emte used InRoads and MicroStation to monitor the construction. Using BIM
methodology reduced project delivery time and cost by 40 percent.
