A New Viaduct for the MIL Campus of the University of Montreal in Canada by civiliti

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Article source: civiliti

A simple viaduct, located at the entrance of the University of Montréal’s future campus, creates a unique visual and spatial happening.

In forthcoming years, the University of Montréal, one of the city’s major institutions, will be opening a second campus located on a former railway yard.

Existing tracks had to be relocated in order to accommodate the new facilities and a new viaduct was built over the campus’ future access road. The site was dug to allow the underpass, then bermed up slightly to accommodate the 24-metre steel bridge structure. The reinforced concrete abutments extend into zigzagging retaining walls, creating a dynamic mineral landscape.
