Location: Superior, CO
Construction Type: Bridge Structure
Client: The Sanitas Group
This project assignment was to design a new, heavy load pedestrian bridge to support the trail system crossing Rock Creek. While primarily targeting pedestrian use, the bridge also needed to support occasional light vehicular loading and equestrian loading as well. The bridge also features tethered, break-away guard rails that are designed to come unattached in the event of a flood, an important element for this region of the great Rocky Mountains.
