A seaside bike path in Rio de Janeiro, intended to be a legacy of the 2016 Olympic Games, has been shut down since April 21, when a stretch of 26 meters collapsed after being hit by a wave. The 3.8-km-long, 2.5-m-wide path opened this past January at a cost of $13 million. Contemat and Concrejato were responsible for the design and construction of the precast-concrete path. The investigation is continuing and the path is expected to be restored in time for the games.
