Albano, Leonard D.
This capstone project investigated various pedestrian bridge design alternatives to span Salisbury Pond in Institute Park and proposed other critical park improvements. Three bridge alternatives were considered including a truss, arch, and cable-stayed design. Each of the three design alternatives were analyzed using a comparative chart which included rating criteria such as economics, constructability, and environmental impact. The arch bridge was identified to best serve the design challenges at Institute Park, and the details of the structure were used to compile a final cost estimate. Along with the bridge design, other park amenity improvements were investigated with associated costs, and a final design package was created.
