Paso del Gordo Bridge


Meliter S.A.


Durazno, Uruguay


We presented the work of a new bridge over Paso del Gordo, located on Route 6 over Arroyo El Cordobés, working for Meliter S.A. and the Ministry of Transportation and Public Works.

This project is of great importance, as it will make it possible to replace the old wooden bridge, which has completed its cycle and represents a limitation for the flow between the towns of Paso Pereira and La Paloma de Durazno.

It consists of a culvert type bridge with 9 spans and 45m in length and a roadway width of 8m:

- Construction of direct foundations.
- Construction of panels and reinforced concrete tables
- Placement of safety railings on roadway.
