Design for the construction of a 150-foot-long, two-span, prefabricated steel truss bridge. The pedestrian bridge is elevated 30 feet to span the Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way from the third level of Las Vegas’s City Hall parking garage to the parking lot of the Smith Center, providing a direct route to Symphony Park from the office core of downtown, and reducing traffic and congestion at the performing arts center. The bridge is supported from the existing parking garage on the east side of the tracks. On the west side of the tracks, a concrete support structure with two elevators and stairs support the bridge. GCW subcontracted the architectural work to Ed Vance & Associates, the MEP engineering design to JBA Consulting Engineers, and the landscape design to JW Zunino & Associates. Structural engineering, civil engineering, survey, specifications, and project management were provided by GCW.
