T.Y. Lin International, in a Joint Venture with International Bridge Technologies and SNC-Lavalin, served as the Managing Partner and the Lead Designer for the new, 3.4-kilometer-long New Champlain Bridge including approach spans and a cable-stayed portion crossing the navigational channel of the Saint Lawrence Seaway.
Serving as a major gateway into the City of Montréal, Québec, Canada, the New Champlain Bridge is an asymmetric cable-stayed bridge with an iconic 170-meter-high concrete tower and stay cables in an aesthetic harp arrangement. The three-corridor design accommodates two three-lane corridors for vehicular traffic, a central transit corridor capable of accommodating a future light-rail transit system, and a multi-use path for pedestrians and cyclists.
The Champlain Bridge is the cornerstone of the Government of Canada’s New Champlain Bridge Corridor Project, one of the largest infrastructure projects in North America. T.Y. Lin International worked closely with Signature on the Saint Lawrence, the consortium that oversaw bridge design and construction, and its project partners to meet the aggressive design-build schedule for the replacement structure.
