Bridge to Cross Red Sea Planned




Engineering News Record reports that the Notice to Proceed has been given to Noor City Development Corp. of Boulder Colorado by Middle East Development LLC for a design/build/operate/transfer project to cross the Red Sea. Initial conceptual designs indicate a suspension design with a 23 mile span. The bridge will connect Djibouti and Yemen and should have a great economical impact on this area between Africa and the Middle East. Let's hope so for the $10 to $20 billion dollar estimated price tag. Moses was unavailable for comment.
