Connecticut Department of Transportation – Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge

Connecticut Department of Transportation’s extradosed bridge is the first of its kind in the U.S., and it has shallower cable angles and lower tower heights while maintaining required span length and marine navigational clearances. The 4,200-foot-bridge spans the Quinnipiac River and connects with I-95, I-91 and Route 34. The unique $415 million bridge has become a distinctive landmark across the New Haven skyline and will handle 140,000 vehicles daily, improve safety and mobility, and facilitate freight rail activities at one of the busiest intermodal ports in the country.
