BRIDGE TO THE FUTURE: STATE-OF-THE-ART PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE AND GATEWAY TO COLUMBIA

A pedestrian bridge linking two sides of a presently disconnected community in Columbia, South Carolina has been proposed. This bridge will span Highway 277, a major connecting route into the downtown Columbia area, and will provide an impressive "Gateway to Columbia". The proposed bridge is intended to reflect the dynamic nature of Columbia and of South Carolina. It is intended that the bridge be a high performance structure that demonstrates the state-of-the-art in bridge construction. The bridge may incorporate state-of-the-art materials, fabrication and erection methods and long-term monitoring technology. Long-term, low maintenance durability is a specific goal of this bridge project. This report is intended to provide an overview of the proposed project and act as a feasibility study for various material selection, design and construction alternatives.
