City of Worcester
In 2013, the City of Worcester announced its intentions to work with students from Worcester Polytechnic Institute to refurbish the historic Elm Park Red Wooden Footbridge. Along with apparent accessibility concerns, the bridge contained many structural defects. After extensive structural evaluation and site assessment, the WPI project team was able to design an optimized and accessible footbridge and landscape that retain the historical integrity inherent to the park. The design will be implemented in the park in the coming months.
