High-performance precast concrete for 100-year life span in Kansas City

6 February 2012

Boasting an eight-lane capacity, the iconic, cable-stayed Christopher S. Bond Bridge was built to replace the existing Paseo Bridge, which spans the Missouri River in downtown Kansas City.


LafargeHolcim SF™ silica fume cement was used to meet the high-performance precast concrete specifications. Our Type III cement was also used in the concrete precast girders. Today, the bridge boasts a 100-year life-span.
