Abstract:This article describes the rehabilitation conducted on Amposta Bridge, one of engineer José Eugenio Ribera?s most prominent works. A prior article, ?Estudios, inspección especial y proyecto de rehabilitación del puente de Amposta" (studies, special inspection and rehabilitation design for Amposta bridge) Publisher in the first quarter 2006 issue (241) of Hormigón y Acero, described the original design, its eventful history and a special inspection to determine the state of repair of its members and elements. The present article, a continuation of that paper, describes the rehabilitation process. Performed with today?s resources, it entailed virtually no change in Ribera?s brilliant structural conception, while applying state-of-the-art technology to lengthen the life of this masterwork of engineering genius and important contribution to Spanish heritage.
