Abstract

North Lake Ave is a road located in Worcester, MA that has been suffering from erosion for many years. Conceptual plans have been made to create a linear park and convert this road into a one-way. Options have been considered to address the erosion and collapse of the road. The design for a retaining wall and bridge will be compared based on safety, economic, constructability, environmental, societal and sustainability criteria. The design for the bridge includes the superstructure, substructure, and foundation, in compliance with AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications.
