The Veer Kunwar Singh Setu is a four lane highway bridge over the Ganga (Ganges) River near Patna in Bihar, India. It was procured through a Design-Build contract. McElhanney successfully value engineered an extradosed segmental bridge concept with 16 back-to-back 120m-long spans that reduced construction duration and material consumption for the 1,920m navigation spans portion of the 4km bridge. Approach spans outside the navigation spans utilizes precast segmental erected in span-by-span. The bridge opened in June 2017.
After 50 years of public petitioning including hunger strikes by the isolated community of Basohli, the Border Roads Organization (BRO) of the Indian Ministry of Defense proceeded with the development of the Atal Setu Bridge, an alternative route to National Highway 1A.
