Top performances are surfacing off the ?eld in Columbus. The main span of the superstructure of the Main Street Bridge is supported by an inclined, single-rib, steel tied arch located between the roadway superstructure and the pedestrian walkway. Bracing for the rib extends down to the ?oor beams, which makes this structure internally braced and complex to analyze.
