PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Disney Construction’s flagship project, The Devils Slide Bridge Project is located just south of Pacifica California along the scenic Highway 1.  The main portion of the project consists of two single lane bridges spanning across a valley adjacent to the existing highway.  The two bridges are concrete, cast-in-place, segmental bridges, each with a total length surpassing 275 meters or 900 feet.  The bridges themselves are made up of over 13,300 cubic yards of concrete not counting the four 1100 cubic yard footings.    The main span of each bridge reaches over 426 feet and is being constructed in individual segments just over 16 feet long using a traveling form system.  The project is also surrounded by an environmentally protected area causing a wide array of environmental challenges and site restrictions.  Other fun and challenging portions of this job include the large amount of excavation, falsework towering over 100 feet high, nearly 4000 feet of elaborate barrier and bicycle rail, complex architectural rock finishes, and much more.
