Some Examples of the Design and Construction of Bridges in Denmark

The Railroad and Highway Bridge Across the Little Belt AT the point of crossing, the little Belt (see map, Figure 1) is 2,700 ft. wide, the depth of water being 65 ft. near the shore and 130 ft. at mid-channel. The sea bed is a blue-green clay of extraordinarily dense and homogeneous composition; the deeper deposits are absolutely watertight and free from stone, which proved an important factor in the success of the foundation method adopted.
