AbstractThis paper describes the solution adopted for the substructure support at the Big Pic River Bridge, which is a three span, through truss, cantilever structure, 600 feet in length. It is one of many along the route of the Trans-Canada Highway, which in part, skirts the north shore of Lake Superior. Valleys in this area, of irregular volcanic and derived metamorphic Precambrian bedrock, are overlain by considerable thicknesses of stratified silts and clays deposited in post glacial Lake Algonquin. These soil conditions give rise to difficult foundation problems for embankments and structures, particularly at river crossings.
