Construction of a floating bridge and floating tunnel along the E39 coastal highway in Norway is part of the country's $24.5 billion infrastructure program. The nearly 2.5-mile-long bridge is expected to achieve the world record for the longest floating span, while the tunnel, also about 2.5 miles long, would be the first of its kind in the world. The bridge project should set a new benchmark in construction design, according to government engineers.
