Following a general description of the Walnut Lane Bridge the stages of loading the prestressed concrete girders and the sequence of construction operations as they affected the design are discussed. The owner's stress limitations are listed and longitudinal bending in girders, transverse bending in stiffener diaphrams, and shear and principal tensile stress in the girder are considered. Safety factors are considered for various loading conditions.
