4th Bridge Over the Panama Canal

The 4th bridge over the Panama Canal includes a cable stayed bridge to cross the navigational channel with an unsupported main span of 510m and a total length of approximately 1,000m between expansion joints. Langan is providing geotechnical, geologic, and seismic consulting services for the project, which once completed, will hold the world record for unsupported span length for a bridge 51 meters wide. The foundation of the bridge, which crosses several geologic formations, is designed to withstand the highest axial and seismic loads for this type of structure in Panama City.
