CEMEX Concrete for Bridge Reconstruction in Arizona
August 23, 2017
CEMEX is supplying concrete for the Cameron Bridge, part of a reconstruction of the Arizona section of Route 89 in the southwestern U.S.
Spanning more than 650 feet (approximately 200 meters), the new bridge includes four lanes for highway traffic, a pedestrian underpass, and other concrete flatwork that is expected to improve traffic flow and road safety. To best meet the project’s construction demands, CEMEX installed a remote batch plant at a nearby quarry, which enabled the company to supply more than 20,000 cubic yards (over 15,000 cubic meters) of concrete.
During this project’s development, CEMEX overcame several operational challenges, including pouring at a height of nearly 100 feet (around 30 meters), dealing with winter weather shutdowns, as well as fluctuations in the level of the Little Colorado River Gorge.
“CEMEX takes great pride in delivering quality building materials for infrastructure projects such as the new Cameron Bridge,” said Eric Wittmann, West Region President, CEMEX USA. “This project is one of many examples of how we’re building a better future for our communities.”
