“All of the viaduct’s components and sections are being prefabricated on land ... to make sure that not one cubic meter of cement will be poured directly above the marshlands during the construction,” Acosta said.
More than 69,000 cubic meters (2.4 million cubic feet) of concrete are being used to build the Cienaga de la Virgen viaduct.
The structure will weigh an estimated 166,554 tons. ■
