by Daniel Burnham and Edward Bennett. The book outlines
what was later termed “The Burnham Plan” to protect
the Chicago lakefront and provide lake access for all of
Chicago’s neighborhoods. The plan is mentioned in a Project
article on page 12 about the 35th Street Bridge, which
provides pedestrian access between a southside Chicago
neighborhood and the lakefront.
This is a link to a website containing project history, videos,
photos, and statistics for the St. Croix River Crossing. This
bridge is featured in a Project article on page 16 and a
Concrete Bridge Technology article on the grouting of posttensioning
tendons on page 34.
This is a link to the Winter 2017 issue of ASPIRE®, which has
three articles on durability, performance, and reliability of
post-tensioning systems and includes a discussion of details
of grouting operations. Grouting of post-tensioned tendons
for the St. Croix River Crossing is the subject of a Concrete
Bridge Technology article on page 34.
This is a link to a time-lapse video (courtesy of Work Zone
Cam) of the construction of the St. Croix River Crossing
which is the subject of a Project article on page 16 and a
Concrete Bridge Technology article on page 34.
This is a link to an electronic version of the July/August
2018 issue of Innovator, a Federal Highway Administration
publication. This issue has an article on using ultra-highperformance
concrete for the connections between precast
concrete bridge components.

website for an archive of a comprehensive design example
for an intermediate pier cap that supports prestressed
concrete bridge girders.
