OPAC Consulting Engineers

Cable Supported Bridges

OPAC's work on cable-supported bridges included design, design review, construction engineering, seismic evaluation and engineering investigation. We designed the longest span new suspension bridge in the United States in over 35 years when it was completed. Our principals have worked on design and construction engineering on a few cable-stayed bridges prior to OPAC. One of our principal directed the precedent-setting seismic evaluation and retrofit strategy studies of the Golden Gate Bridge in the late 1970's.
