Abstract

The project’s goal was to design an improvement solution to the 115-foot pedestrian bridge over the Saugus River along the Northern Strand Community Trail (NSCT). Three improvement alternatives were considered -- aesthetic improvements, rehabilitation, and replacement. The final improvement design consisted of a 130-foot prefabricated replacement truss structure with new concrete abutments that met AASHTO LRFD requirements. Final deliverables included primary steel member and abutment sizes, a demolition and construction plan, cost estimate, and a project schedule.
