|Special feature||Longest cable-stayed bridge in America|
In 2011, Flatiron completed the longest cable-stayed bridge in North America, which spans a good 480 meters in length and is located near New Orleans. One special challenge in building the John James Audubon Bridge was the Mississippi River flood season. To enable the main span pier foundations to be poured, the HOCHTIEF company used a purposebuilt 2,300-metric-ton cofferdam construction. This saved both time and resources.
