Project name: University of Central Florida Pedestrian Bridge
Location: Orlando, FL
Owner: University of Central Florida
Size: 170’ x 12’ (3) span continuous
Points of interest: The University of Central Florida was seeking a solution on the grounds of the campus for an attractive bridge to cross a man made pond. A primary goal was to make this bridge sort of a centerpiece of that area of the campus. We presented several options and they decided on a prefabricated “H-section” truss style bridge to allow students a clear view of their surroundings when crossing the bridge. They also chose painted steel, with a galvanized form pan to accept reinforced concrete decking (by others), stainless steel cable safety rails, and built-in-place custom “L.E.D” lighting in the kick (or toe) plate level, all to enhance an already attractive structure.
