Madison Street Pedestrian bridge
Client: Missoula Redevelopment Agency
Location: Missoula, MT
Team Consultants: WGM Group, OZ Architects, Maxim Technologies
BCE served as prime consultant on the project. The unique nature of the project required BCE to perform evaluation of the structural capacities of the existing bridge piers in addition to the unique layout of the new multi-span suspended bridge. BCE was in charge of producing and coordinating the design documents for approval of both City and State agencies.
WGM Group, Inc. (WGM Group) teamed with Beaudette Consulting Engineers, Inc. (BCE), Maxim Technologies and OZ Architects on the design and construction of a new bicycle-pedestrian bridge over the Clark Fork River in Missoula. This unique bicycle-pedestrian bridge passes through the abutments of the existing Madison Street Bridge. The new bridge allows pedestrians and bicyclists to safely and conveniently cross the river at trail level below the Madison Street Bridge. This innovative extension of Missoula’s Riverfront Trail system provides uninterrupted access from Orange Street to Madison Street on both sides of the river.
BCE provided structural design and served as the lead engineering firm on this $1.25 million Missoula Redevelopment Agency project. WGM Group provided project management, survey, NEPA documentation, hydraulic analysis, environmental permitting, and construction administration services. The bridge was completed in February 2006.
