The Vihantasalmi Bridge is situated in Mantyharju, about 180 km north of Helsinki. The new bridge was planned to replace an old and narrow tied-arch steel bridge in beautiful scenery, where the road crosses a strait of a lake. Since the project was technically and aesthetically very demanding, a design competition was arranged to find the best solution for the bridge. The final design was based on the winning proposal of the competition, in which a traditional bridge type usually used for small wooden bridges was applied to a larger span.
