Longest prestressed concrete girder in United States

At 223 feet long, nearly nine feet high and over 246,500 lbs., it’s the largest pre-stressed concrete girder manufactured in the United States. Crews installed this record-setting girder in the early morning hours of Saturday, Jan. 9, 2021 on the new southbound Interstate 5 Puyallup River Bridge in Tacoma, WA. Project information is found here: wsdot.wa.gov/Projects/I5/PortlandToPortSB/default.htm
