The Cascade Orchards Bridge is a continuous partially prestressed rigid fram concrete bridge constructed from cast-in-place concrete box girders and precast prestressed concrete girders field post-tensioned for structural continuity. A description of the structure, design criteria, and measurement results about the in-service performance of this bridge.
