Old City Park Pedestrian Bridge

RQAW engineers analyzed the bridge loads and park’s topographic features to design the abutments. These abutments were supported on a concrete spread footing and contained concrete wingwalls. Our designers developed a geometric layout to minimize flooding at the bridge site, including incorporating IDNR ‘construction in floodway’ requirements. Our team incorporated architectural features into the concrete abutments to blend the custom pedestrian bridge seamlessly into the park overall aesthetic.
