601 double box girders
160 plate girders

Construction of all 35 spans for the approaches to the new Champlain Bridge over the Saint Lawrence River between Île-des-Soeurs and Brossard, Quebec, and construction of the Île-des-Soeurs Bridge.
The bridge approaches comprise three separate decks: a middle deck reserved for public transit lanes that’s made of a single box girder and two other decks, one for each travel direction, that are each made of two box girders. Cover plates connecting the two girders and peripheral supporting elements complete these deck structures.
