Within the realization of the interchange of Valley of the Rubicone on the Highway A14, near the city of Gatteo (FC), a overpass has been built for a crossover of the existing carriageways of the highway.

Piacentini Ingegneri has worked as advisor of the enterprise that has performed the jobs, for editing of the constructive project and for  assistance in building yard during the execution of the work.

The work scheduled for bypass the carriageways of the highway is a single-span bridge of light calculation of 50.40 m.

It is developed with straight line on a single carriageway with deck of total width B= 13.30m (which 10.50 m passable).

The manufactured is realized with four beams in steel S355J2+W and S355K2+W. 1.90 high with collaborating concrete slab.

The bridge is an integral type, this means that is provided the structural continuity between bridge deck and shoulder. The beams are in fact resting on the shoulder partially built, then is completed the cast of substructures with the casting of the slab to get the continuity of the connection node. The structure therefore has neither support equipment nor expansion joints to the advantage of the operating costs borne by managing entity.

The bridge in question is the first integral one built on the network of Autostrade per l’Italia in recent times.
