The Quincy Bayview Bridge is an early cable stay bridge, at least for the US. The bridge has 56 cables set up in 4 planes, with each plane having 7 cables on each side of the 182-foot main towers. Each pair of cables supports a 60 foot long by 6 foot thick bridge deck section. The sections were unique at the time since they were a combination of prefabricated steel and precast concrete. Also unique was a new epoxy coating on the cables. Both of these innovative features are now commonly found on more recent cable stayed bridges.
