NYCDDC Pedestrian Bridge Design

Pedestrian Bridge at 71st Street
Project Overview: 
The New York City Department of Design and Construction, Division of Infrastructure, has retained McLaren's services to provide architectural, structural engineering, and construction related services for the replacement of pedestrian bridges as part of a Design Excellence program for the City. The bridges to be designed by McLaren include the following: 55th Avenue over LIRR Main Line in Queens; 94th Street over LIRR Port Washington Branch in Queens; 167th Street over LIRR Port Washington Branch in Queens; 71st Avenue/Cooper Avenue over LIRR in Queens; West 155th Street over AMTRAK & West Side Highway in Manhattan; and 204th Street over the Harlem Line of Metro-North Railroad in Bronx.
McLaren's Role: 
The project’s intent is to provide an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant design for these bridges at significant locations throughout New York City. Innovative design solutions were necessary in order to achieve the project’s goal, with the bridges meshing well with the surrounding environment. McLaren also had to select appropriate materials and construction methods and integrate the design within the fabric of each neighborhood.
