The Chilina Bridge will have a great importance for the city of Arequipa, ordering the incoming and outgoing traffic, and also facilitating and accelerating the transit of the perimeter road of the city sweeping on the valley of the Chili River.
This structure will be located between the “Chilina” Avenue, and Magnopata round road, and will be more than 500 meters long, flying 50 meters high over the ground.
The bridge, composed by two parallel structures with a straight lintel 11.3 meters high, has two lanes for circulation on each element, being the decks fixed on the piles, resulting ductile behavior of the viaduct.
The transversal sections of the bridge are concrete boxes not only in the deck, but also in the piles, being only the deck prestresed.
The total length of the bridge is 562 meters, being the span distribution 100+157+142+102+61m, and the construction procedure the incremental launch.
In conclusion this is a huge engineering importance construction is dimensions, located on a seismic area, which is also integrated in the landscape respecting the Chili Valley and Arequipa; and with views to the Misti Vocano, and the snowed Pichu Pichu and Cachani.
