United States: the longest cable-stayed bridge in the West

16 July 2005

Construction of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, which spans the Cooper River in South Carolina, required over 100,000 tons of LafargeHolcim Portland cement.


This impressive structure, 515m long and 85m wide, designed by architecture firm Lavigne and Chéron, is a first in France! This cement combines a beautiful finish and excellent shock resistance, making it particularly suitable for the bridge pylons.
