Conveniently located between Baltimore and Washington DC, The Arundel provides a premier living location for young families and professionals. Big R Bridge recently designed and delivered a ninety-four-foot steel pedestrian bridge to connect the 4th floor of this luxury community to an existing garage at The Hotel at Arundel Preserve.
The skyway bridge was constructed using high end finishes to keep with the Arundel’s luxury feel. The completed bridge dimensions included a 94′ span and 8′ clear width. A roofing system was also integrated to provided residents with a pleasant crossing experience in any weather condition.
Since the Arundel was unable to integrate the abutment into the parking lot or building structures – Big R Bridge cantilevered both sides of the bridge 19′ from the piers with both ends skewed over 61 degrees. This solution not only allowed the bridge to be successfully installed within just a few hours of delivery, but also ensured a safe and efficient crossing for residents.
Big R Bridge offers custom-designed solutions for a variety of sites and applications. The lightweight strength, efficiency and speed of installation make Big R Pedestrian Bridges ideal for crossing multiple lanes of traffic or other major obstacles. They’ve been popping up in a wide variety of applications in healthcare, higher education, hospitality, transportation hubs and mixed-use developments.
