Providence Pedestrian Bridge

CLIENT: High Steel Structures
LOCATION: Providence, Rhode Island
project overview:

The Providence Pedestrian Bridge in Rhode Island is built on existing piers made available with the relocation of I-195.

DBM Vircon’s Scope of Work:

  • Modeling and detailing of the girders, floor beams, diaphragms, bracing and misc. steel

Project Stats:

  • 394 ft. long
  • 350 tons

Providence Pedestrian Bridge Project Highlights & Challenges:

  • Extensive use of Architectural models and drawings was required to correctly model the complex geometry of the structure. Many sketches were drawn, meetings held and much co-ordination was done with the design team.
  • The bridge is unique in that there are over 200 Architectural Wana panels bolted to the side of the bridge girders. These panels form a wood fascia on the bridge. Connections for each of these panels was modeled and incorporated into the shop drawings.
  • The bridge has an IPE wood deck. DBM Vircon modeled the IPE wood deck planks in position to facilitate the field crew.
