Project Description

MetroBikeLink Trail Bridge Over Norfolk Southern RR

As part of the MetroBikeLink extension from North End Park to the Swansea MetroLink Station, TWM designed a 248’, 4-span rolled steel beam bridge over Richland Creek and the Norfolk Southern Railroad.  The bridge design used steel piers to facilitate and minimize construction activities immediately adjacent to the active railroad, and weathered steel girders and piers to eliminate the need for future maintenance over the railroad and the creek. TWM engineers used timber for the bridge decking to add a natural element and to maintain a park-like feel.
