Children can finally walk to school safely thanks to the new Big R pedestrian bridge above busy Copper Hill Drive in Valencia, CA — a community of 20,000 high-end homes, abundant green spaces and 30 miles of recreational trails.
Recession shelved bridge project in 2008
Big R originally designed the 190′ span bridge in 2008 as part of the massive housing development, but manufacturing was suspended when the region was hit by the recession. Newhall Land, a leading community planner and developer, recently resurrected the bridge project.
Manufacturing accelerated by early design
Our engineering team had finalized the design-phase of the project in 2008, so resuming the manufacturing process was quick and problem-free. We shipped the bridge in three, 63′ sections that took only two days to install with limited traffic interruption.
Big R delivers as promised and secures future contracts
This was the first time Big R’s team had partnered with contractors, C.A. Rasmussen. The contracting firm was pleased with our work, and we’ve since completed other projects together.
