Location: Israeli-Jordanian Border, near Beit Shean
The Jordan Gateway Bridge provides a direct vehicular corridor between Israel and a special employment zone on the Jordanian side of the border.
The bridge is 352m long and crosses the River Jordan. The superstructure is comprised of six, 46m long spans, with 36m and 40m end-spans. The deck is formed of two 1850cm deep composite steel plate-girders, 50cm deep cantilevered secondary steel beams, which support a 25cm deep reinforced concrete deck. Loads are transferred to the piers by way of guided reinforced neoprene bearings.
