Construction outline

RC16-span continuous cantilever hinge T-girder bridge ⇒ Cantilever hinge girder removal, external cable reinforcement, floor slab reinforcement, support replacement, etc.

The Genta Bridge (completed in April 1951), located on the Inoko Kuniyasu Prefectural Road and spanning the Sendai River, had aged markedly and was also too narrow (W=5.5 m) for large-vehicle opposing traffic to easily pass.

Therefore repair and reinforcement work was performed and the effective width was increased from 5.5 m to 6.5 m.
