Upcoming LA YMF Events

  • From July 23, 2014 6:00 pm to July 23, 2014 8:00 pm

    Event Information:

    Join us for a technical presentation about the replacement of the Sixth Street Viaduct over the LA River. Constructed in 1932, the Sixth Street Viaduct is an important engineering landmark in the City of Los Angeles.  It is the longest historic Los Angeles River crossing structure spanning an overall length of 3,500 feet.  Elements of the current bridge have deteriorated over the past 80 years due to an internal chemical reaction known as Alkai Silica Reaction (ASR). Various costly restorative methods have been tried, but none have worked to correct the problem.

    As a result of its declining condition, the Sixth Street Bridge is in need of replacement.  The City of Los Angeles, Bureau of Engineering (BOE) is working in partnership with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to design a new bridge. The winning design by HNTB includes canted cable support arches and iconic “stress ribbon” for the whole length of the viaduct.

    Speakers from the Sixth Street Viaduct project team include Mr. Alfred Mata, P.E., City of LA, BOE Project Manager and the design team, Mr. Vic Martinez, P.E., HNTB Project Manager. Dinner is included as part of the registration.

    Online registration is now closed. We look forward to seeing you at the event.
