Pumarejo Bridge

Pumarejo Bridge

Pumarejo Bridge is a 3,200m-long bridge including an 800m-long cable-stayed section and 1,300m of viaducts as well as access roads.

The new cable-stayed bridge is located over the Rio Magdalena river in Barranquilla and the Salamanca Island Road Park in Sitionuevo, Colombia.

It replaces the old Puente Pumarejo: with its two lanes, the old bridge was no longer doing justice to the increased traffic, and it quickly became an obstacle for shipping on the Rio Magdalena due to a clearance below of only 16 meters.

The new bridge comprises of 6 lanes of traffic (3 lanes each way), 2 side bike paths and a pedestrian path along its side.

Dextra provided rebar connection solutions that were designed to reinforce the concrete structures.

More than 120,000 Rolltec couplers were provided for pier and deck reinforcements.

In addition, over a thousand of Unitec bolted couplers were applied for the connection rebars without the need of threading.

Since its completion, it became the longest road bridge in the country and one of the largest in Latin America.
