Project Description

Summit has been chosen by the City of Asheville to design a bridge to replace the existing pedestrian bridge at Carrier Park in Asheville, NC. The bridge crosses over a bicycle track to provide pedestrian access to the recreational facilities located inside the track.

The initial contract is for a Feasibility Study to determine which conceptual design to pursue, with the study focusing mainly on two points:

  1.  the ability of each option to achieve a No-Rise certification and
  2. the overall cost of each option. The location of the bridge within the flood plain creates the largest constraints to the design.

For this project, our team is providing the feasibility study that incorporates several our services including Landscape Architecture, Structural Engineering, and Water Resources (Hydraulic and Hydrologic Analysis).
