Blue Arches over Telegraph
2004 – 2006
- Total Project Investment: $67 million
- Location: Taylor, MI
C.A. Hull was contracted to construct what is known as the Gateway Bridge in Taylor, MI because it acts as the “gateway to Detroit” for those traveling on I-94 from Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport. It was developed by the Detroit Regional Gateway Advisory Council (DRGAC) in preparation for Super Bowl XL hosted at Ford Field in Detroit in February 2006.
This structure stands as Michigan’s first tied-arch bridge. C.A. Hull’s project team was responsible for the construction of the structure, including technical cast-in-place concrete and complex structural steel erection work. Approximately 1.5 million pounds of structural steel went into these bridges and the bracing that resembles footballs. This project also consisted of four miles of I-94 reconstruction, along with bridge rehabilitation work on five other structures.
