Franchetti’s intervened on the structural consolidation of the 170 m long Wagner Estelita Campo bridge on the BR050/GO motorway that crosses the State of Minas Gerais from north to south, connecting São Paulo with Brasilia.

The project started from the structural analysis of the bridge and culminated in reinforcing the structure.

It was followed by the reinforcement and expansion of another 27 bridges along the same motorway.

INNOVATION

An expansion and reinforcement method was conceived to allow the deck to be widened while resolving the problem of the piers being undermined by the river’s strong current.
In this way, the proposed solution allowed the bridge to remain open
